The OCZ Technology Vertex 3

OCZ doesn't have the labels ready just yet, so our early sample arrived as you see it here.

The case is aluminum with an aluminum cover.

All of the good stuff is on the inside. The Vertex 3 uses the new SF-2200 controller. The PCB doesn't have a place for a supercap like the Vertex 3 PRO PCB. With the Vertex 2 launch both the enterprise PRO and consumer non-PRO shared the same PCB; that doesn't seem to be the case this time around.

 

We did notice something on the PCB that we weren't expecting to find. At the top of the PCB, in the middle, is what appears to be an opening for a mini USB 3.0 connector.

Both sides of the PCB have eight flash modules.
