OCZ Vertex 4 Solid State Drive Seen at CeBIT

As promised, OCZ Technology is showing off at CeBIT 2012 its newest Vertex Series solid state drive, the Vertex 4. Pictured below, the upcoming SSD is based around the Indilinx Everest 2 platform, it features synchronous MLC NAND Flash memory (SLC can be used for enterprise-oriented models), and is capable of transfer speeds of up to 550 MB/s and up to 90,000 IOPS.

The Vertex 4 drive on display at CeBIT has a 2.5-inch form factor, a SATA 6.0 Gbps interface, and, according to the live demos, it delivers sequential read/write speeds of 367/305 MB/s and up to 80,000 IOPS for 4k random reads.

When do products announced in CeBit usually release? I've been considering a 128GB SSD, and if these are out soon they I'll directly jump to the next gen SSDs.

Isn't it worse than SF-driven Vertex 3 ?

Wondering the same thing, I can see it can achieve higher IOPS though

it might be .. but OCZ now owns Indilinx & does not have too pay SF .. .. so the question should be .. How much cheaper ?

Says up to 550mb/sec am I missing something? Those tests are a bit low.

Speed depends on the benchmark ran.I would have prefered a run of CrystalDiskMark over AS SSD

It depends on data compressibility and how compressable data is the test using. I beleave AS SSD is using 0% and in RealLife there is approximately 50% compressibility so we might be looking at 450MB/s. But its just a guess. Acc time is awesome.

It was running as IDE/ATA mode, not as AHCI (yep, noobs!).

So it must be trully around 550MB/s.
