The question then presented itself as to whether the consumer would see a marked difference between thet two.
A bit of background and several tests later lead us to the belief that the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSD just may be the equal to the previous generation SandForce equipped SSDs that utilized the large 27% over provisioning vice the standard 7%, this time around without the massive premium.
