    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.
