You know those OCZ Agility 2 and Vertex 2 SSDs with SandForce controllers we reviewed last week? Fresh from earning a TR Recommended award for the former, OCZ has now beefed up both lineups with 400GB and 480GB models—quite a ways up from the previous maximum capacity of 240GB.
The 400GB Agility 2 and Vertex 2 drives both feature the same maximum transfer speed ratings: 250MB/s for reads and 240MB/s for writes. 4K random writes also hit up to 22,500 IOPS on the Vertex 2 model, according to OCZ. Performance specifications aside, the company's recipe still involves 2.5" form factors, 300MB/s Serial ATA interfaces, TRIM support in Windows 7, and three-year warranty coverage.
OCZ doesn't quote pricing for the 400 and 480GB behemoths, but you should expect them to cost a pretty penny. The 200GB Agility 2 sells for $639 at Newegg right now, while the Vertex 2 model with the same capacity is priced at a whopping $749.99. We wouldn't be surprised to see OCZ charge over a grand for the doubled capacities.
