OCZ has recently announced their newest series in the Vertex line of solid state drives, namely the Vertex 4 series. This new video card features Indilinx's new Everst 2 controller, which has a dual-core 400MHz processor to increase performance. According to the press release, the random read and write performance even beats the Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition.
On the Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition, the top performance was said to be 550/500 MB/s for sequential read/write (respectively); Random 4KB read/write was 55,000/65,000 IOPS; and Maximum 4K Random Write was 85,000 IOPS. The exact sequential read/write for the Vertex 4 was not released, but it's said to have up to 535 MB/s sequential bandwidth; 4K random read/write is 95,000/85,000 IOPS. The latency on the Vertex 4 is 0.04/0.02ms for read/write, which is quite fast. All numbers with slashes are respective to read/write.
CEO of OCZ Technology Ryan Petersen said,
No word on a specific release date or prices, but it will come in 128GB to 512GB sizes hopefully later this month. You can read the press release here.
