    Phoronix: OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD

    It's been a while since last providing a Phoronix review of a solid-state drive from OCZ Technology, but now with Serial ATA 3.0 support becoming more prevalent on modern Intel and AMD motherboards, they have been releasing a number of updated products to take advantage of SATA 3.0. In the review we have our hands on an OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD as we see how this SATA III SSD performs under Ubuntu Linux.

    These results are insane! I mean, it's almost 20 times faster in the first test! Perhaps an SSD drive would be worth the money now'days, especially for compilation work in Gentoo.

    Once you go SSD, you never go back. Trust me.

    I can imagine. I mean, I would still have a couple of TB of traditional disks on my NAS and in my desktop computer for storage, but to have the main system disk as SSD would really kick ass.
