OCZ Storage Solutions, which is now a subsidiary of Toshiba, has announced the Vertex 460 series SSDs.
The SSDs will feature Toshiba's 19 nm MLC NAND flash memory, as well as OCZ's Barefoot 3 M10 controller. This controller allows the unit to be encrypted using AES-256-bit encryption without losing performance.
The combination of this allows the Vertex 460 SSDs to read sequentially at up to 545 MB/s and write sequentially at up to 525 MB/s. It can push up to 95,000 and 90,000 random read/write IOPS, respectively, while it can sustain 23,000 IOPS during sustained 4K random writing.
The 2.5” 7 mm thick SSDs will be available in capacities ranging from 120 GB to 480 GB, though there is no word on pricing for these yet.
