The OCZ Vertex Turbo Series is a 2.5" Solid State(SSD) internal SATA II hard drive that comes with 64MB onboard RAM. Available capacities are 30GB, 60GB, 120GB, and 250GB and RAID support is also offered for running multiple drives together. This drive has the fastest read/write speeds in its class at 270MB/s and 210MB/s, which is in part due to the increase in host speed and an upgrade of the onboard RAM cache from the original 166MHz to 180MHz. Basically this is a tweaked version of the original Vertex Series so it shares the same MLC (multi-level cell) construction and compact alloy housing which, along with its total weight of 77g makes it great for laptops. Many of the new OCZ 2009 SSD drives have benefited from an update in controllers which has greatly improved read and write speeds. The Vertex Turbo Series uses an Indilinx Barefoot controller which is currently the top performer, showing up on more and more OCZ drives. SSD drives allow you to boot up your computer or start a large program in just a few seconds simply because they are so fast, as well they use very minimal power since there are no moving parts.
