Beginners Guide: How To Install / Remove an Intel Socket LGA2011 CPU

OCZ improves Vertex 4 with firmware 1.4 - PCSTATS.com OCZ improves Vertex 4 with firmware 1.4
Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 12:01PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

The new firmware really improves the performance of the Vertex 4 128 and causes a moderate improvement for the 256 GB version. Writing large files on the Vertex 128 GB now goes twice as fast, and 25 percent faster on the Vertex 4 256 GB. You will actually notice this increase when using the SSDs. In other areas the improvements are less drastic, which makes the average look less impressive. If you own a Vertex 4 128 GB or 256 GB then we definitely recommend installing the new firmware. Do remember to make a back-up first, for example with Ghost, otherwise you will lose all your data.

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
