Rethink Storage Performance
As the fourth generation of the legendary Vertex family, the Vertex 4 Series pushes storage performance to the max and redefines the modern day computing experience. Vertex 4 SSDs are innovatively engineered to deliver industry-leading file transfer rates and superior system responsiveness, all while providing a more durable, reliable, and energy efficient storage solution compared to traditional hard drives. Designed to take full advantage of the SATA 3 interface, the Vertex 4 unleashes ultimate productivity, gaming, and multimedia applications.
Industry's Highest IOPs Performance up to 120,000
Incredible performance in workstation and heavy-duty environments with multiple data threads.
No Compression-Related Performance Limitations
Better performance with "real world" data streams of varying "compressibility" as well as fully incompressible data such as videos and multimedia files, encrypted data, archive files such as .ZIP files and software.
Indilinx Infused™ Everest 2 Platform
Leading edge dual-ARM controller architecture enables faster performance like nothing else you've experienced.
Fast Boot Times and Ultra-Low Latency
Boot up in as little as 9 seconds, and industry-low latencies of .04 reads and .02 writes enable superior multitasking and flawless performance.
Industry-leading 5-Year Warranty
Backed by OCZ's renowned service for ultimate peace of mind.
Ndurance 2.0 Technology
Advanced suite of NAND Flash management to increase durability and reliability to expand the NAND's lifespan.
Excelling In Performance - No Matter the File Types
Mirroring real-world performance scenarios over a broad spectrum of consumer desktop and mobile applications, Vertex 4 SSDs are designed to provide a superior user experience and extreme performance over the other current solutions available on the market.
With the cutting-edge Indilinx Everest 2 platform, Vertex 4 is optimized for consistent, high speeds with the complete spectrum of file types and sizes including both compressible and incompressible data for balanced performance like no other drive you've experienced.
SSDs are fast, and very efficient for the meager tasks we expected of our rigs. When considering your options, size is obviously a big factor, while speed is also something to consider—speed will ultimately determine how quickly your computer launches, etc. We’re running Windows 8 on SSDs, so suffice to say everything is lightning quick.
The performance enhancements are quite noticeable, especially during video rendering and editing. While editing graphic intensive productions featuring a healthy amount of video and audio layers, the editing process went from freezing often to being almost 100% seamless

OCZ SSD Features
OCZ SSDs offer industry-leading low latency, enabling faster access to data and a more responsive computer. Optimize an old notebook or maximize a modern PC.
It’s through cutting-edge technology that OCZ has set itself apart from the rest. Our secret sauce is in our advanced suite of flash management.
With innovative storage features, OCZ promises to change your computing expectations and live up to the hype of using an SSD.
Worried about the lifespan of flash memory? OCZ increases durability and maximizes the life expectancy of the flash in each SSD.
Beyond the Box
OCZ SSDs deliver lasting performance and reliably long after the initial ‘fresh-out-of-the-box’ experience.
The SSD Advantage
SSD technology enables 100x greater througput, quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
More Bang for the Buck
When considering performance per dollar, SSDs are more cost-effective than their mechanical counterparts.
The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards is extremely durable, unlike HDDs and their rotating disks and seeking spindles.
SSDs use significantly less power than hard drives, promoting a longer battery life in notebooks, less power consumption, and a greener computing environment.
With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC to eliminate distracting noise during gaming or entertainment.
