Specifications, Pricing and Availability
The OCZ Vertex 3.20 comes in two capacity sizes - 240GB and 120GB. We reviewed the 240GB model yesterday and now we have the 120GB in the lab for a rundown. The new product in the Vertex 3 family pairs LSI's SF-2281 controller with new IMFT 20nm flash. OCZ is one of the first significant SSD players to bring 20nm flash to the market, but we've seen Toshiba's 19nm Toggle used for the last four months in retail products.
In our testing we found the 240GB Vertex 3.20 to be a good performer with only a minor performance loss when compared to the original Vertex 3 240GB. Looking at the specs of the Vertex 3.20 120GB, the same can't be said. OCZ rates the 120GB model at 20K read IOPS and just 40K write IOPS. Both new Vertex 3.20 share the same sequential performance - 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write.
Newegg already shows the two new Vertex 3.20 drives in stock. The Vertex 3.20 120GB sells for $114.99 and the 240GB model sells for $219.99. At the time of writing Newegg still had the original Vertex 3 120GB in stock at $119.99, but not the 240GB model.
The new mainstream placement for the Vertex brand means new packaging and a new accessory package. You still get a three year warranty, but the desktop adapter bracket is gone with 3.20. Let's take a look at everything included.
