A range of high performance SSDs have been unveiled at this year’s CES from various manufacturers, including OCZ, Micron, Pliant, Toshiba and LSI all aiming to grab the attention of serious PC builders.
OCZ’s Vertex 3 Pro demo model features the new SandForce SF2582 controller, SATA 6Gbps interface and claims up to 75,000 write IOPS along with 550MB/s and 525MB/s sequential read and write, respectively. Micron’s C400 series claims sequential read and write of 415MB/s and 256MB/s, respectively, but no mention of IOPS.
Plaint’s Lightning LB 150S claims 120,000 sustained IOPS, but no info about whether this is read/write, let alone anything about throughput. Finally, Toshiba’s MKx001GRZB features 90,000 random read IOPS and 17,000 random write IOPS with 510MB/s and 230MB/s sequential read and write, respectively.
On to PCIe products, OCZ unveiled its Z-Drive R3 featuring 135,000 IOPS, 1GB/s read and 950MB/s write and LSI unveiled its WarpDrive SLP-300 with an enormous 240,000 IOPS and 1.4GB/s read performance.
