OCZ refreshed its versatile Vertex 460 lineup today, but slightly changed its name to differentiate it from previous models in the series. The Vertex 460A has the same design, features and performance as the previous model though it includes new Toshiba A19 MLC NAND.
OCZ says the performance of the Vertex 460A SSD will be comparable to the Vertex 460. The read/write performance will start at 530MB/s read; 420MB write at the low-end with the 120 GB model and work its way up to 545MB/s read; 525MB/s write with the high-end 480 GB edition.
The drives will feature OCZ’s Barefoot 3 controller. In addition, the drives will feature OCZ’s 3-year ShieldPlus warranty. The drives are rated for 20GB of host writes per day.
Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
