OCZ Agility 3 Series SATA 6.0 Gbps SSD


~ Internal Happiness ~
OCZ Agility 3 Solid State Drives are designed and built to unleash the full potential of the 6Gbps SATA3 interface.

For those that want numbers, the read speed is the same 525 MB/s on all three models (they have capacities of 60 GB, 120 GB and 240 GB, respectively).

It is the writing speed that depends on the available storage space, although only for the 60 GB one.

While the 120 GB and 240 GB SSDs manage to scribe data at up to 500 MB/s, the third one is limited at 475 MB/s. Of course, most people probably won’t feel the difference.

As is the custom for solid state drives of today, the Agility 3 have the 2.5-inch form factor and support for TRIM.

Finally, 25nm MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash chips are used in their making, while the random read/write performance is of 50,000 IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) and the MTBF of 2 million hours.

The Agility 3 line includes the following three models, all of which are backed by a three-year warranty:
60GB | maximum read/write speeds of 525/475 MB/s | €118 (pre-order)
120GB | maximum read/write speeds of 525/500 MB/s | €202.50 (pre-order)
240GB | maximum read/write speeds of 525/500 MB/s | €385.10 (pre-order)
