OCZ has announced a 20nm version of its popular Vertex 3 solid state drive, which should extend the availability of the SSD as other new drives come out. The 2.5" drive is built with MLC NAND flash and features a 6Gb/s SATA connection. The drive will be available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB. An LSI SandForce SF-2200 processor allows the Vertex 3 to achieve read and write speeds up to 550MB/s and 520MB/s, respectively. Senior VP of Product Management Daryl Lang said, “The Vertex 3 has been a popular SSD series among consumers and implementing the newer, smaller process geometry will not only extend its life, but enables mainstream users with an excellent computing experience at a competitive price point.”
