Having acquired Indilinx back in 2011 OCZ have since been utilising the Indilinx Barefoot controller in its first step away from the notorious SandForce controller. We first saw OCZ use Barefoot in the Vector SSD but now they are back with another drive and a slightly revised controller. Can the more affordable Vertex 450 prove its worth in the highly competitive SSD storage sector?
At the heart of Vertex 450 is Indilinx Barefoot 3. Furthermore, this new drive uses 20nm MLC NAND flash in a bid to deliver fast response and reliability. The Vertex family has claimed many an accolade, can the 450 continue this trend?
