In preparation for an upcoming SSD review, I was taking photos of OCZ’s Vertex 3 240 GB drive. Upon voiding the warranty and cracking it open, I came across an interesting sight:
I am getting in touch with OCZ for some more info, and I’ll update this post as it comes in. So follow us however you like, and we’ll keep you updated. Also watch for our full review of the drive, as well as Intel’s 520 Series SSD which just arrived, this week at HCW!
Update: Just as expected, it is indeed the same Micron flash they have been using before. So that means 2 die per package, and still synchronous. I am finished with performance testing, and it appears to perform as expected from Micron flash. No word on binning or anything like that.
There’s your update! It looks like OCZ is to the point where they are getting their own branded flash modules made by Micron, much like what Intel is doing. My only wish is that they had used the same model numbering as before, as we finally have that figured out.
