OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS Solid State Drives unleash the performance potential of the SATA 6Gbps interface, leading the speed revolution in this next-generation solution. Featuring the latest SandForce controller design, OCZ designed the Vertex 3 Max IOPS to push the limits in read/write rates to blaze past the competition with up to 75,000 random write performance. These latest drives take productivity, gaming, and multimedia applications to the next level to work in perfect symmetry with the latest enthusiast platforms.
Built with the quality, reliability, and durability that lives up to the OCZ name, the Vertex 3 Max IOPS Series easily integrates into today’s mobile and desktop platforms and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan as the ultimate Windows 7 companion.
Enhanced IOPS Performance
Driven by the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281), the Vertex 3 Series is designed and built to unleash the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA III interface and significantly improve your overall computing experience over any other SSD solution. The 120GB Max IOPS edition maximizes data throughput with up to 75,000 IOPS compared to 60,000 with the standard version.
A Superior PC Experience
In addition to maximum performance, a Vertex 3 upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Vertex 3 SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.
The Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included
The Vertex 3 Max IOPS Series features a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the SSD for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.
