OCZ has added two new ranges of SSD drives to its line-up with the launch of the Agility 3 and Solid 3 solid state drives (SSD). Both new ranges use the same MLC NAND Flash while taking advantage of SandForce’s SF-2200 processor and a SATA 6 Gbps interface to provide, as expected from a SSD fast read and write speeds.
The new Agility SSD is available in three storage sizes while the Solid is only available in two models. The Agility 3 delivers up to 525MB/s reads, 500MB/s writes, and up to 60,000 4KB random write IOPS while the value-oriented Solid 3 features 500MB/s reads, 450MB/s writes, and 20,000 4KB random write IOPS.
The new OCZ Solid 3 60 and 120 GB drives will cost around $152 and $267 respectively, while OCZ’s Agility 3 60, 120 and 240 GB SSD will be priced around $158, $268 and $509, respectively.Filed Under: Hardware, Technology News
