[] OCZ Announces 64GB Vertex 4

OCZ announced yesterday via their Twitter profile that a 64GB version of their Vertex 4 will soon be available. Vertex 4 is based on a second generation OCZ/Indilinx controller, named the Indilinx Everest 2. However, it was later revealed that the hardware is actually from Marvell. We reviewed the 256GB and 512GB Vertex 4 SSDs about a month ago and came away very pleased with how the drives performed. The Vertex 4 product page has also been updated with specifications for the 64GB model, which we've summarized in the table below:

OCZ Vertex 4 Specifications Capacity 64GB 128GB 256GB 512GB NAND 2Xnm MLC Number of NAND Packages 8 16 16 16 Number of Die per Package 1 1 2 4 Sequential Read 460MB/s 535MB/s 535MB/s 535MB/s Sequential Write 220MB/s 200MB/s 380MB/s 475MB/s 4K Random Read 70K IOPS 90K IOPS 90K IOPS 95K IOPS 4K Random Write 50K IOPS 85K IOPS 85K IOPS 85K IOPS Street Price N/A $150 $300 $650 As expected, there is a decline in performance when moving from a sixteen package design to an eight package design. Random write unsurprisingly takes the biggest hit but 50K IOPS is still great for a 64GB drive. For comparison, a 60GB Vertex 3 is rated at 60K IOPS and a 64GB Plextor M3 at 40K IOPS. Overall the 64GB Vertex 4 is at the upper spectrum of ~64GB SSDs and it presents very promising performance figures.

OCZ did not announce any specific availability other than "soon", but I contacted OCZ and will update this article once I receive a reply. Pricing is also unknown as of now. We will try to get our hands on a review sample as soon as possible, and Anand also has a 128GB sample in the house, so keep your eye on our SSD Bench section if you're in the market for a new drive.
