That said, here's what you would find if you were to crack open your Vertex 3.20 and void the warranty. In the first few photos we see eight 20nm MLC NAND modules marked with part number 29F16B08CCMF3. Each of these 16GB chips (and the other eight on the reverse) were built by Intel. Next to the memory is the venerable SandForce SF-2881 controller - a unit that we are all too familiar with at this point. Despite its age, it's still one of the better controllers on the market.
On the back we see the remaining eight 20nm MLC NAND chips - again, each with a capacity of 16GB. Once formatted in Windows 7, the Vertex 3 reported 223GB of free space when connected as a secondary drive.
Let's move ahead and put OCZ's Vertex 3.20 to the test.
