OCZ Vector 150 SSD Review

The Vector 150 SSD

There is no surprise when it comes to the design of the Vector 150… it looks near identical to their other OCZ products and that is no bad thing. This is a 7mm thick drive and flipping it over reveals a metal base with information sticker on the centre. This notes CE and FCC approval and beside it we can see the SATA 3 power and data connectors.

Inside we again find a design similar to the older Vector. OCZ use a green PCB and on one side we find eight 19nm MLC NAND Flash chips which are Toshiba branded THS8TE670DJBA4C. A further eight are on the opposite side of the PCB and on both surfaces we also find Micron branded DDR3 cache chips.

In the centre of the PCB we find the Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller with a pad applied, sandwiched between the chip and metal casing. Inside the controller are two processors, one an ARM Cortex and the other OCZ Aragon with the product supporting ONFI and Toggle parts across eight channels. OCZ will initially offer 120, 240 and 480GB parts which all support TRIM. The Vector 150 also features advanced flash management designed to allow 50GB of host writes per day for 5 years, that’s up from 20GB on the original Vector.

This is a drive which runs at 0.55w when idle and 2.5w when active and OCZ have added AES 256 encryption support to this model. OCZ rate the Vector for up to 550MB/s sequential read, 530MB/s sequential write with 90,00IOPS read/ 95,000IOPS write (maximum) and the warranty OCZ offer is 5-years.
