OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB SSD Review
6 July 2013
Conclusion: When we took a look at the original Vertex 3 a couple of years back, it set the bar quite high for all competing products that followed and OCZ then continued this through with the Vertex 4, then most recently with the Vector which has pushed the bar right up setting a whole new standard in SSD...
Conclusion: Is the OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB really 0.20 better than the OCZ Vertex 3 240GB? Well, it really depends what your definition of "better" is. Before we even get to that, let me provide a bit of background information. The "0.20" designation at the end refers to the 20nm Intel flash ICs.
Excerpt: Recently OCZ has been focusing on its high-end Vector SSDs and before that the Vertex 4 models. Despite of that, not too long ago a new version of the Vertex 3 SSDs was also introducted, called the Vertex 3.20. The suffix .20 refers to the flash memory, which is Intel 20nm MLC NAND.
OCZ Vertex 3.20 Solid State Drive Review: Version 2, Revised.
27 May 2013
Summary: OCZ decided to re-release their previous hit – Vertex 3 solid state drive. The new SSD revision uses the same LSI SF-2281 controller, but different flash-memory manufactured using more advanced 20 nm production technology. Have they managed to create yet another eye-catcher?
Excerpt: The SSD market has seen a lot of change in recent months, both with price drops and the introduction of new and faster high-end SSDs. We put 52 current SSDs side-by-side so you can find out what's the best and what's the cheapest.
Summary: On the test
bench today is a speedy little black box called the OCZ Vertex 3. If you haven't spoiled your computer yet with a Solid State Drive (SSD) yet, now's the time -- SSDs have never been more affordable!
Summary: As we said earlier, there are two versions of SandForce 480GB drives manufactured with the SF-228X and synchronous flash. The first we reviewed today that uses 16 NAND ICs, but a few other companies went with a slightly modified controller (SF-2282) and 32 NAND ICs.
Summary: Up for review today I have something that I haven’t reviewed in a long time, an SSD drive. Yes it’s been about 2 years actually, wow time just flies doesn’t it?! So for review today I have the OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD which features the latest Sandforce controller and uses the newer SATA III...
Pros: Extremely fast read and write speeds, Drastically decreases boot time, Simple installation
Summary: As we get warmed up with the benchmarks we stop by and give CrystalDiskMark a run through the paces. This is a very basic read and write test that is used to either confirm or deny the manufacturers rated speeds.
Pros: Good performance, Outperforms the RevoDrive X2 on some tests, Available up to 480GB, Affordable SATA III performance, Broad compatibility
