Following Super Talent yesterday, the latest vendor to announce a series of solid state drives is OCZ with a new line based on multi-level cell flash that promises unprecedented performance for this kind of devices. Dubbed Vertex, OCZ’s latest line makes up their “performance-level” SSD offerings and complements the Solid and Core series aimed at the “value” and “mainstream” markets respectively.

These 2.5" SATA-II drives can reportedly hit 200MB/s during sequential reads and 160MB/s during sequential writes and are available in capacities of 30GB, 60GB, 120GB and 250GB. OCZ claims the drives have a “new architecture and controller design” complete with 64MB of dedicated cache for the 120GB and 250GB models, and 32MB for the 60GB and 30GB offerings. They’ll come with a two-year warranty and range in price from $129 all the way up to $869.
