OCZ Vertex Turbo 120GB SSD
Speed is such a fascinating thing. I can tell you from experience that driving a car at 240 km/h (or 150 mph for our non-Commonwealth friends) is both an exhilarating and frightful experience. Being on the edge, while also realizing you could be scraped off the pavement if something goes wrong, is a very intoxicating and sobering thought all at the same time. But for many, speed can also extol such a high cost, in more ways than one, that it’s not worth the pursuit.
Of course, the lure of speed in the computer world can be just as enticing, though it’s far less likely you’ll get pancaked into a concrete wall wihle running some overclocking benchmarks, no? Well, Solid State Drives are the new exotics of the computer world, boosting performance in leaps and bounds. But as we know, those increases often come with a hefty price tag. So just how much are you willing to pay for the speed? Ah, now that is indeed the question.
We’ve been looking at several Solid State Drives (with more on the way) and today we’ll be examining the OCZ Vertex Turbo that features some impressive performance claims. We recently tested its vanilla sibling, the Vertex, and were quite impressed. So the promise of a turbo boost (quite literally) with this SSD has us eager to get it into the starting blocks and dropping the hammer to see what numbers it can post.
Let’s do just that and find out just how fast the OCZ Vertex Turbo really is.
