OCZ Vertex LE fastest in reads and writes
OCZ this morning launched an update to its Vertex line as fastest ever drive to use dense multi-level cell (MLC) memory. The Vertex Limited Edition uses a yet-again upgraded controller with read speeds as high as 270MB per second and much faster writes than usual at 250MB per second. Its speed potentially makes it the best option for those who need the fastest possible single drive.
The 2.5-inch, SATA II drive supports TRIM to avoid slowdowns when used inside a Windows machine and comes in either 100GB or 200GB capacities. OCZ hasn't given either a price but does promise that it should be available through resellers within the next few weeks.
