Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Why is the Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition still so expensive? Vertex 4 is $100 less for a 256GB and $50 for the 120GB.

Look at the read write speeds for both

As long as the data is compressible the speeds would be substantial for Sandforce.
Note: Atto disk benchmark data is compressible.
In real life scenarios Vertex 4 would prevail at incompressible data.
Vertex 4 latency is slightly up and causes it's drawback in application performance.
(Vertex 4 uses Intel Synchronous NAND and in future; Vertex 4 MAX IOPS might use Toggle NAND)

(I would prefer the Crucial M4 personally for it's competitive value, great read performance and reliability but the 200MiBps write speeds is sufficient for me. Since SSD wear out after writing 71 tebibytes for 1.2M MTBF or 40GiB per day for 5 years.
119 tebibytes for 2M MTBF or 66.7GiB per day for 5 years.
If Vertex 4 price drops around Crucial M4 then I would pick up a Vertex 4.)

I agree the M4 is very nice for the price. However I already own a Vertex 3 Max IOPS and I paid $50 less then what it is selling for now. FYI I own a 240GB Vertex 3 max IOPS and has worked flawlessly. I need another for Raid. I have been waiting for the price to drop and every other SSD out has dropped but these. It would be cheaper for me 2 buy 2 new M4 then buy another Vertex....almost.

Because it's the only ocz ssd that has quality nand memory from Toshiba.

All others get nand from lowest bidder.

Ahh that makes sense. I didn't even think about that.

Thanks, mcg75
I didn't know until i researched the relation that OCZ used quality 32nm Toshiba toggle NAND with 5000 writes per cell at 4k page.
So that is what makes Vertex 3 Max IOPS expensive.
