OCZ ups peak SSD speeds with Summit line
OCZ has rolled out its third 2.5in SSD family this year: the Summit series.
The range comprises 60GB, 120GB and 250GB post-format capacities. They all have 128MB of cache memory.
They have peak read and write speeds of 220MB/s and 200MB/s, respectively - though the 60GB model has a write speed of 125MB/s.
The three models have sustained write speeds of 120MB/s, 200MB/s and 200MB/s, OCZ said - each significantly faster than the company's most recent SSD line, Vertex, though the read numbers are smaller.
Each drive contains multi-layer cell Flash technology.
OCZ didn't provide pricing, but we've seen the 60GB model listed online for £209 and the 120GB model for £316. In the US, the 120GB model retails for around $381 (£241/€276). ®
10 Mb/s On Random Write Performance Here....
Sorry to say, in way improvement from other OCZ perofrmance on SSd, which was ~ 100,000 bytes per swecond on random write, thats when you install software or game is keeping tracks, etc, very useful tool of expected performance, yet ocz isn't so hopt, still
10 Mb/s ocz SSd random right here on NEW Summit drive, well weap, ITS WASTE OF MONEY, until entire mechanism hits relatively even platou of say 200 Mb/s , ITS CLUNKIER.
