OCZ to Release Vertex SLC SSD?
Rumour has it that OCZ will soon be releasing a new series of Vertex SSDs, though based on SLC Nand this time around. There have been several discussions about the upcoming release on the OCZ forums, though there has been no official confirmation from the company.
Reportedly named Vertex Extreme, the new series of SSDs are likely to feature Barefoot Controller. SLC would mean users can expect higher sequential bandwidth and higher random IOPs from the new SSDs compared to MLC Nand based ones. Expected to be launched in 32, 64 and 128GB modules, the Vertex Extreme SSDs could possibly be priced two to three times higher than OCZ’s MLC based Vertex series SSDs.
How quickly the rumours are confirmed and what the actual pricing and specifications are remains to be seen.
