The OCZ Vertex 460A is basically a tweaked re-release of last years Vertex 460. The two drives share the same controller and the same basic NAND, although the 460A apparently uses a newer version of Toshiba's 19nm MLC. Unsurprisingly there is little difference in performance between the 460 and 460A. In absolute terms, with peak sequential read/write speeds of 516/500 MBps and peak 4K random read/write speeds of 25/120 MB/s the 460A does have a rock solid performance profile but OCZ cannot afford to re-release 12 month old technology, at least not of they want to continue to compete with the likes of Samsung, SanDisk and Crucial who are continuously innovating. Overall the 240GB 460A still sits amongst the top handful of drives both in terms of outright performance and value for money[Jan '15 SSDrivePro]

The OCZ Vertex 460 replaces the Vertex 450. The main difference between the two is a change from Intel/Micron (IMFT) 20nm MLC NAND to Toshiba 19nm MLC NAND, a fitting move considering that Toshiba acquired OCZ shortly before the Vertex 460's release. Comparing the Vertex 460 and 450 shows that the two drives are broadly on a par in terms of performance. In terms of pricing the Vertex 460 is priced reasonably considering its age, I expect prices will drop rapidly as retailers build stocks of the relatively new drive. At current prices the 240GB Vertex 460 represents above average value for money but struggles to compete with its slightly more expensive sibling, the Vector 150. Comparing the 460 and 150 shows that Vector 150 leads in terms of effective speed by 10% but only costs 5% more than the 460. [Mar '14 SSDrivePro]
