  • Excerpt: In early May, I made a few changes to our performance charts by clustering all of the SSDs together by capacity size. At the time, 24nm Toggle Mode flash was really starting to take off and products like the Plextor M3 Pro and SanDisk Extreme started to hit store shelves.

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB Solid State Drive

15 March 2012
  • Excerpt: In our last SSD roundup, we took a look at a variety of drives with different controllers and NAND configurations.  We found that those two factors make up a big part in dictating how a drive will perform.  The drive that we're reviewing today, OCZ's 240GB Vertex 3 Max IOPS SSD, has a controller and NAND configuration that we haven't examined before, so it will be interesting to see how it compares.

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 120GB Solid State Drive Review

21 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Vertex 3 has always been a favourite of ours, due to the internals used, SandForce controller and the sheer performance that the drive offers. The Max IOPS offers the same blistering fast performance, but with a difference. Due to the fact of the Max IOPS utilising Toshiba Toggle Flash NAND meaning it is better capable of handling huge loads of stacked writes.

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS (VTX3MI-25SAT3-240G)

28 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Do not think that the Vertex 3 MAX IOPS is a faster drive than the Vertex 3. If we look at the at the performance in PCMark Vantage, we can see that the difference in the performance between the Vertex 3 and Vertex 3 MAX IOPS is very slim, and the Vertex 3 often comes a tad ahead of the MAX IOPS. Most desktop applications are not executing enough input/output operations to take the advantage of the MAX IOPS’s ability.
  • Pros: Great performance, SATA 6 Gbps compatibility, 2.5” to 3.5” bracket, Out-performs the Vertex 3 in high queue depth, 32nm NAND which offers greater durability
  • Cons: Steep Price

[Review] OCZ Vertex 3 240GB MAX IOPS

1 August 2011
  • Conclusion: The drive felt as amazing as expected after the benchmark results. The only glaring point in testing was that boot racer only yielded a 10/11 second score. A lower time was achievable on RAIDed SATA 3G drives, as well as other SATA 6G SSDs. Including OCZ’s own Agility 3 series SSD. ATTO 4K writes never achieved the astounding rate they did on Crystal diskmark testing, as ATTO only uses a 4QD not a 32QD.

  • Summary: The Max IOPS edition of the Vertex 3 line is the one of the fastest overall non-RAID SSD we’ve had our hands on although the Intel 510 Series is hot on its heels and the Intel brand has a substantial, loyal following.

  • Conclusion: To reflect upon the question posed in the introduction of this review, did OCZ get ambitious in naming this SSD, or is its name just a mere statement of the facts? From one generation to the next, 20-30% gain in performance is considered massive in the technology world. But what we have witnessed here today with the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB is not just a marginal difference in the charts.

  • Excerpt: In our very first SandForce SF-2200 article we told you that SandForce opened the door for manufacturers to get creative with products this year. When that article went live we had already learned that some SSD manufacturers were taking a good look at what NAND flash they wanted to use in their SF-2281 offerings. So far, we've only seen IMFT (Intel / Micron) 25nm flash paired with the SandForce SF-2281 controller, but that is about to change.

OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB SSD Review

24 May 2011
  • Excerpt: A few months ago we were lucky enough to receive a preview version of OCZ’s Vertex 3 SSD . The 240GB model we tested performed well, even at that pre-release stage, exceeding the performance of pretty much every other drive on the market at the time. Since then the final revision was released and it has been competing with Intel’s new 510 series SSDs and the Crucial M4/C400 , both of which are based on Marvell chipsets.
