OCZ'z Vertex Pro 3 Demo: World's First SandForce SF-2000

Quote:
A few months ago SandForce announced its second generation SSD controller: the SF-2000 series. The specs SandForce released at the time were almost too good to be true.

SandForce is promising a single enterprise level drive that can deliver 500MB/s sequential reads and writes (for highly compressible data), and up to 60K IOPS for 4KB random reads and writes. That’s not an evolutionary improvement, that’s more than a doubling of what most of the competition can do today. Even compared to existing SandForce drives it’s a huge increase in performance. But as I’ve heard many times before, anyone can put out a promising PDF.

Today at CES, OCZ previewed its first SF-2000 based drives: the Vertex 3 Pro and Vertex 3 EX. Both are based on SandForce’s SF-2582 controller, the highest end offering in the SF-2000 family. The drives won’t see the light of day for months (sometime in Q2) and what OCZ is showing today is very, *very* early silicon and hardware. The drives are using 32nm Toshiba toggle-mode NAND (effectively DDR NAND), however OCZ will go to market with 25nm Intel NAND when the drive is ready.
More....and OCZ new Z-Drive R3 with peak reads/writes of 1GB/s

Cool, but 75K IOPS is not a lot. This thing does 1 Million IOPS

If only. When does that next "Powerball" start?

I personally got tired of anecdotal evidence and bought a Vertex 2 to dip my oars into the SSD landscape.


For the price vs performance (and satisfied curiosity) - all I can say is bring it on with these future generations.

As end user consumers - we are heading in the right direction.

They are nice aren't they

Don't think I'll be able to go back to HDD for my OS.

The one thing to consider though is that the read/write speeds do little for you if you use the SSD for the OS only. And for Data, an OCZ Revo drive may be the better solution. It would be more interesting for the OS, if the access times were improved.

What is the big hoopla about not having a SSD as your OS drive? Laptop owners usually do not have the option to have several drive's.
I have been a SSD user since the Intel 32GB G1 SLC SSD came out. Right now I am using a Corsair F-series 120GB with the Sandforce-1200 in it. I am sure there are faster drives out there, but I actually do not thnk I will be able to tell a difference. I have 26 second boot times with some decent sized programs loading at boot. I hit my a program and it is eye blinking quick. How much quicker do we need, or what is the so called bad thing using a SSD as a boot drive?

? SSD's are generally recommended as boot drives
