    OCZ have just released the new firmware for the Vertex drives, Version 1.4

    Ristread McSweeney OCZ Marketing Coordinator told DriverHeaven "It is well known that overtime the NAND flash memory in traditional solid state drives is effected by data fragmentation which causes the drives to slow down noticeably.

    While competing drives still suffer from performance degradation, OCZ’s exclusive SSD firmware helps keep performance at peak levels without any further maintenance from consumers.

    The background optimizer runs during idle-time to restore the SSD to its original performance, providing peace of mind for the entire life of the drive.

    In addition, these drives will fully support TRIM with the impending Microsoft Windows 7 release, making OCZ SSDs a future-proof investment."

    You can get the firmware on the OCZ forum now over here
