OCZ adds 400GB and 480GB Vertex 2 and Agility 2 SSDs to line

OCZ first debuted the new Vertex 2 and Agility 2 SSDs in April. When the SSDs were introduced, they were offered in 50GB, 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB capacities. The company has now announced that it is offering new solutions in the lines with 400GB and 480GB of storage.

The new SSD offerings are still 2.5-inch drives that will be good for users wanting SSD performance but needing more storage space than the small boot drives typically seen in the SSD market. Both the Vertex 2 and Agility 2 SSDs have the almost identical performance.

Both offer up to 250MB/s read and up to 240MB/s write speed. Random 4K rewrites are up to 22,500 IOPS on offered on the Vertex 2 line. The drives use the SATA 3Gb/s interface. Pricing on the new SSDs is unknown at this time.
