 OCZ Vertex 3. - OCZ Vertex 3.
Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 9:01AM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Around the same time that SandForce emerged as the leading force in the SSD controller market, OCZ Technology, a company that is known for its memory, shifted its focus to concentrate on SSD storage. A quick glance through OCZ's website shows that the company carries no less than 10 lines of SSDs with different form factors and different interfaces. OCZ has SSDs for the SATA 3 Gbps, SATA 6 Gbps, PCI-Express, SAS, and USB interfaces, and in 3.5-inch, 2.5-inch, and 1.8-inch form factors. OCZ demonstrated its commitment to get ahead in SSDs when it purchased Indilinx for 32 million USD in 2011. The shift in focus paid off well for OCZ, as it has become one of the biggest players in the SSD industry. OCZ is also one of the biggest backers of the SandForce controller. The company was one of the first to adopt the SF-1222 on its Vertex 2, and it is the first ever to deliver the drive with the latest generation of SandForce SF-2000 controller. Their latest consumer based SSD, Vertex 3, is the successor to the popular Vertex 2. We have received the 240GB version of the Vertex 3 that we are going to take a look today.
