OCZ has rolled out their Vertex Turbo solid state drive that was built upon the current 2.5″ Vertex line, although improvements include increasing the clock speed for both the host controller managing data as well as the inclusion of a 64MB cache. Currently, OCZ has estimated peak read speeds of up to 270MB per second (from its previous 250MB) alongside a peak write speed of 210MB per second, which is a vast improvement from the 160MB found earlier. The Vertex Turbo models rely on an SATA II interface to ferry data, boasting benefits associated with SSDs including a lower power usage and a skip-proof design. Depending on your needs and budget, the OCZ Vertex Turbo SSDs will come in 30GB, 60GB, 120GB and 250GB capacities.
