Report: OCZ Prepping Launch of Vertex 5 SSD

OCZ is reportedly developing the fifth generation of its Vertex range of high-performance consumer SSDs, which aims to compete against Samsung, who currently dominates the performance sector of the market with its 840 and 840 Pro SSDs.

TechPowerUp has speculated that the Vertex 5 could integrate 20 nm MLC NAND memory, be based on the Barefoot 3 platform and consist of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB variants that will come to the market towards the end of May 2013.

    Meh, it's difficult to get excited about sata 3 SSD's anymore. Sure they're fast; I own a 840 pro myself, but they really can't get any faster until the next gen sata 4 makes it's debut.


    Sure, if you're short sighted and all you care about is looking at benchmark numbers.. The rest of us will be happy with the move towards increased capacity at a lower $$/GB.
