Eurocom launches RAID 10 notebooks with superfast 480GB OCZ VERTEX2
SandForce-1200 Solid State Drives

Eurocom is announcing an addition to its already extensive list of multi
vendor storage solutions with OCZ's 480GB Vertex 2 SATA 300 2.5" MLC SSD
drive, product code: OCZSSD2-2VTXE480G. The Vertex 2 drive will be
available in all Eurocom Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers to offer
industry leading SSD performance and capacity.

1) About OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE480G
The OCZ Vertex 2 drive is based on new cutting edge architecture to push
the limits in both sequential and read/write rates. With performance
that outdoes the competition the Vertex 2 provides ideal quality,
reliability and long lasting life needed by the most demanding users.
The low power consumption of the drive makes it ideal for mobile use
when the customer is relying solely on the battery; the drive only uses
2W while operating and .5W in standby. OCZ Vertex 2 also provides
superior ECC protection, which mimics RAID like redundancy and recovery
from flash block failures.

- Key Specifications
- 400-480GB Max Performance
- Max Read: up to 250MB/s
- Max Write: up to 240MB/s
- Sustained Write: up to 200MB/s
- Random Write 4KB (Aligned): 22,500 IOPS
- SATA 3Gb/s
- Native TRIM support
- RAID Support

2) About SANDFORCE-1200 CONTROLLER
A key technology of the OCZ Vertex 2 is the Sandforce 1200 Controller.
Using the latest controller technology, Vertex 2 provides a faster, more
responsive PC experience, while also offering a cooler, quieter, and
more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard
drives.

SF-1200 SSD Processors provide up to 100x greater data protection than
today's SSD, by using ECC and RAISE(tm) (Redundant Array of Independent
Silicone Elements). RAISE provides protection, speed and reliability
without the write overhead.

PERFORMANCE:
- Random Read IOPS: 30,000 (@4K blocks)
- Random Write IOPS: 30,000 burst/10,000 sustained (@4K blocks)
- PCMark05: 40,000 (HDD test suite score)
- PCMark Vantage: 43,000 (HDD test suite score)


The addition of the high end Vertex 2 drive to the already long list of
drive options gives Eurocom customers an even greater choice of drives
to fit every budget and performance level.
