Introduction

In SAN JOSE, CA on January 22, 2014 OCZ Storage Solutions – a Toshiba Group Company announced its new Vertex 460 SATA III SSD Series, which evolved from the 20nm-based Vertex 450. The Vertex 460 uses the company’s proprietary Barefoot 3 (BF3) M10 controller with Toshiba’s 19nm MLC NAND flash memory. This drive offers up to 545 MB/s sequential reads, 525 MB/s sequential writes, 95,000 4K random read IOPS, and up to 90,000 4K random write IOPS. It further features sustained 4K random write performance up to 23,000 IOPS. OCZ’s BF3 M10 controller is derived from the original controller that features AES-256 encryption and a power-optimized clock. Vertex 460 SSDs are rated to deliver 20GB of host writes per day for a 3-year warranty and are available in 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities.
