OCZ Launches Vector 150 SSD

So by now I’m sure you’ve seen a few reviews of the new OCZ Vector 150 SSD and I figured I’d post up the official press release for it. The new Vector 150 is SATA III and it features 19nm nand flash and the Barefoot 3 controller for speeds up to 550MB/s write and 530MB/s read. They come sin 120gb, 240gb or 480gb capacities and I know I’d love to get one of those big ones! Small SSDs are nice, but bigger is always better right?  Full PR below..

OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced its new Vector 150 SATA III SSD Series that utilizes the latest cutting-edge 19 nanometer (nm) NAND flash process geometry and an in-house controller design that shatters barriers by delivering OCZ’s highest performing SATA III solid state drive series to date.  At the forefront of Vector 150 innovation is OCZ’s proprietary Barefoot 3 controller which was designed completely in-house by the Company’s hardware and firmware teams to enable full design control over the product roadmap while delivering high performance flash-based storage, enhanced endurance, and a host of differentiated features for laptop, desktop and workstation applications.

Building off the success of the original Vector SSD Series, the Vector 150 SSD Series implements industry-leading performance by delivering consistent, sustained speeds over time regardless of whether the data is in compressed or uncompressed formats. It provides superior speeds across all capacities to dramatically accelerate gaming, content creation, and multimedia applications, supporting read bandwidth of up to 550 MB/s, write bandwidth of up to 530 MB/s, 4K random read speed of up to 100,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS), 4K random write speed up to 95,000 IOPS and sustained 4K random write performance of 26,000 IOPS.

“Our Barefoot 3 architecture continues to leverage leading-edge controller technologies to deliver our highest performing SSDs to date enabling computing users with faster file transfers and boot-ups, as well as a quicker, more responsive overall storage experience,” said Ralph Schmitt, CEO for OCZ Technology.  “With workstation class endurance, advanced data integrity and supported by a 5-year warranty, Vector 150 users can feel confident that their SSD will deliver ultimate performance even in the most demanding client computing environments.”

Engineered to provide superior endurance, Vector 150 SSDs are rated to deliver 50GB of host writes per day for a 5-year warranty term, promoting peace of mind that this series will outpace even the most demanding client computing environments over an extended lifetime. OCZ’s powerful Barefoot 3 controller features an advanced suite of flash management tools that can analyze and dynamically adapt to increasing NAND vulnerabilities as flash cells wear and is designed to overcome limitations associated with MLC NAND flash memory and heighten data integrity over the long term.

The Vector 150 SSD Series is available in 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities with ultra-slim 7mm alloy housing to support today’s thin form factor notebooks. Vector 150 SSDs are also bundled with a 3.5-inch desktop adapter bracket and Acronis® True Image™ cloning software to enable quick and easy data transfer from legacy hard disk drives to high performance SSD storage.
