If you had any questions left after Al's review of the new OCZ Vertex 460 series then you can take another look at it today.  This tiny 7mm drive is perfect for Ultrabooks and other slim devices as well as fitting into any system that wants a boost to storage speeds.  The 240GB model that Hardware Canucks reviewed sports two 256MB DDR3-1333 DIMMs for cache to keep the Barefoot 3 M10 controller working full out transferring data between the 19nm NAND storage.  Those of you who have not yet upgraded to a SATA 6Gbps controller may be especially interested in the SATA II performance which is covered in the full review.

"OCZ has begun a major turn-around and the Vertex 460 is meant to be their price / performance leader. With a barefoot controller and 19nm MLC NAND, it certainly has what it takes. "

"The 240GB model that Hardware Canucks reviewed sports two 256GB DDR3-1333 DIMMs for cache" - Ops, not GB, but MB...

Cristian, i was thinking the same thing. I figured Jeremy made a typo and went to check the canuck website, but the yhad the same thing written. When i thought exactly what this 256"GB" memory was i realized that wouldnt make sense.

Definitely 256MB.

That is a damn good point that I totally missed.  We probably will have cache that large in the future but not yet, eh?
