OCZ’s Vertex 3.20 is a welcome replacement to the venerable Vertex 3 and Agility 3 models, delivering good performance for a budget model while giving consumers a single product instead of a myriad of models to choose from.

Vertex 3.20 rips the 840 non-Pro in incompressible data. The low queue depth write IOPS is very good as well. At a single queue depth, the Vertex 3.20 runs very close to Vector. The 240GB version isn't really that much different compared to the 25nm model. I don't think anyone will really notice a big difference running real-world tasks even with two identical systems side by side.
