OCZ Release Firmware Update 1.5 Beta for Vertex 4, Increases Performance
It seems like OCZ is taking full advantage of their relatively recent move over to the Indilinx platform as they’ve just released a new beta firmware, v1.5, for the Vertex 4 and Agility 4. This comes only a couple months after the release of firmware update v1.4, which was released only a couple months after the initial launch of the Vertex 4.
Similar to the 1.4 firmware update, the 1.5 firmware update once again boosts sequential read/write speeds by a healthy margin with the largest perfomrance improvements seen on the 256GB variant of the Vertex 4 pushing sequential writes from the already decent 465MB/s to a whopping 510MB/s (~10%).
Those lucky enough to be rockin’ a Vertex 4 right now, be sure to head on over to OCZ’s website to download the OCZ Toolbox where the update may be applied.
