OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120GB SSD
Here we get our first look at the Max IOPS drive. The shinny label makes this drive difficult to photograph because the auto focus wants to focus on the reflection image.
The Max IOPS is a 2.5"¯ 9mm height drive. The label on the back has the model, capacity size and serial number.
All of the mounting points are where they should be so you won't have an issue running this drive in your notebook or in your desktop with the included desktop adapter bracket.
The SATA power and data ports are offset to the left as they should be and the adapter bracket also offsets the drive so the 3.5"¯ bracket puts the connectors in line with your standard mechanical drives.
The Max IOPS uses the SandForce SF-2281 controller and pairs it with 16 Toshiba Toggle Mode NAND flash chips that use the 32nm package.
8 flash ICs are on each side of the PCB.
