So it's no surprise that they've soldiered on with the Vertex line by updating the third generation equipped with the SF-2281 controller to work in tandem with 20nm NAND. Thus, the Vertex 3.20 is born and we then try to beat it to death on our test bench.
OCZ is certainly getting a lot of mileage from the Vertex moniker. First introduced way back in early 2009, it seems a lot longer than just four years ago.

Back in 2011, we first had a look at the Vertex 3 drives featuring the then new SandForce SF-2281 controller. At the time, it featured 25nm -34nm (keep reading!) MLC NAND and set the bar for enthusiast level SSD performance. Fast forward to 2013 and OCZ has quietly released the latest Vertex 3 incarnation with a .20 mantissa tacked on to represent the 20nm MLC NAND contained within...
