OCZ Vertex 460 120GB SSD Review - OCZ Vertex 460 120GB SSD

OCZ Vertex 460 120GB SSD Review
OCZ's Barefoot 3 controller has a history of performing very well in lower capacity sizes, so we wanted to get in the other capacity sizes to test. (TYO:6502)

The drive packaging keeps the drive secure and away from the other components. OCZ includes a desktop adapter bracket, but it's mounted on the back of the foam case so we don't see it in this image.

Here we get our first look at the actual drive.

The mounting points are where they should be, and OCZ used a 7mm case design. That means Vertex 460 will work in Ultrabooks designed for 7mm drives only.

Inside, we found an OCZ Barefoot 3 controller, two DRAM packages, and eight NAND flash packages.

The Vertex 460 uses the M10 design with a slower clock speed than the M00 used on the Vector 150.

There are two Micron DRAM packages, one on each side of the PCB.

OCZ uses Toshiba 19nm Toggle flash in this product.
