The Vertex 3 Pro is the entry level next generation SandForce enterprise drive and uses MLC or eMLC flash.

The Vertex 3 Pro delivers the same maximum read and write speeds as the Vertex 3 EX but loses around 5K IOPS per second. With 75K random 4K IOPS the Pro model should deliver blazing fast performance at a much lower cost than the other two drives.
