OCZ Unveils Vertex 2 and Agility 2 SSDs

When OCZ announced that it was vacating some of the categories that it was working in a while back to pursue core categories like SSDs and RAM, the company was serious. Since then we have seen several new SSDs for the company and today OCZ has pulled the wraps off two new SSDs.

OCZ has unveiled the new Vertex 2 and Agility 2 SSDs. Both of the SSDs are 2.5" form factor drives and use a new controller that promise better performance across the board. The Vertex 2 is the high-end SSD of the pair and offers improved transfer rates with 4KB random writes at up to 50,000 IOPS.

OCZ promises transfer speeds for the drive of up to 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write. The Agility 2 SSD provides the same read and write speeds with 4KB random writes at up to 10,000 IOPS. Both SSDs connect to 3Gb/s SATA ports and will be offered in 50GB, 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB capacities.
