OCZ Storage Solutions Releases New Vertex 460 SSD Series


The first consumer SSD drive released under the just announced OCZ Storage Solutions company is the Vertex 460 SATA III SSD Series.

Evolving from the 20nm-based Vertex 450, the new Vertex 460 uses the company's proprietary Barefoot 3 (BF3) M10 controller with Toshiba 19nm MLC NAND flash memory. With an emphasis on real-world performance across all capacities, Vertex 460 SSDs have been designed to excell in write speeds without the use of synthetic software-based optimization. The new series promises to deliver high sustained and mixed-workload performance across the board whether the data is in compressed or uncompressed formats. According to its specs, the Vertex 460 offers up to 545 MB/s sequential reads, 525 MB/s sequential writes, 95,000 4K random read IOPS, and up to 90,000 4K random write IOPS, while featuring sustained 4K random write performance up to 23,000 IOPS.



OCZ Vertex 460 Specifications
Capacity 120GB 240GB 480GB
Sequential Read 530MB/s 540MB/s 545MB/s
Sequential Write 420MB/s 525MB/s 525MB/s
4KB Random Read 80K IOPS 85K IOPS 95K IOPS
4KB Random Read 90K IOPS 90K IOPS 90K IOPS
Steady-State 4KB Random Write 12K IOPS 21K IOPS 23K IOPS


OCZ's BF3 M10 controller is a derivative of the original that features AES-256 encryption and a power-optimized clock targeted at the mainstream market. The Vertex 460 SSDs are rated to deliver 20GB of host writes per day for a 3-year warranty, and feature an advanced suite of flash management tools that analyze and dynamically adapt to increasing NAND vulnerabilities as flash cells wear, heightening data integrity and drive life over the long term.

Compared to the flagship Vector 150 SSD, the Vertex 460 are almost te same, although the Barefoot 3 controller in the Vertex 460 (352MH) is slightly lower clocked than the one in Vector 150 (397MHz). Both drives also share the same NAND but each Vector 150 goes through more testing and validation cycles.

Warranty 5 years 3 years 5 years 3 years


The Vertex 460 SSD Series is now available in 120GB ($100), 240GB ($190), and 480GB ($360) capacities with slim 7mm alloy housing to support thin form-factor notebooks, and is bundled with $55 worth of accessories including a 3.5-inch desktop adapter and Acronis True Image cloning software to enable data transfer from legacy hard disk drives to SSD storage.

According to the first reviews for the drive that have appeared online, the Vertex 460 will perform close to the already fast Vector 150 and has been released as a replacement for the Vertex 450 series, although it does not seem to have any major advantage over drives from other manufacturers.
