OCZ Vertex 3 Pro SandForce SF-2582 200GB SSD Preview
Now that we've had some time with the Vertex 3 Pro SSD carrying the new SandForce SF-2000 series controller, we can say that we're impressed with the performance. That comes with a bit of a caveat for those not on the Sandy Bridge P67 platform. Curious? Those interested in buying any next-gen SandForce drive might want to read what we found so you don't buy something you may regret.
Article Title: OCZ Vertex 3 Pro SandForce SF-2582 200GB SSD Preview
In the end, we think the Vertex 3 line will live up to the expectations their predecessors set by being a high performance, quality drive and OCZ did well to retain the moniker. OCZ does manufacture their own PCB which is an extra peace of mind knowing they didn't source it to the lowest bidder as others may do. At speeds of 550MB/s & 500MB/s reads/writes, those that moved up to a Sandy Bridge platform should strongly consider holding out for these newer drives fueled by the SandForce SF-2000 series controllers.

We're not going to be able to run further tests on this particular drive for reasons beyond our control but we should get a look at the finished product soon and will be sure to include this. Thanks.

Wow! That's a fast drive! Looks like it might be time to upgrade.
