Corsair Announces New High-Performance (and Capacity) SSDs
All three are built with the SandForce SF-2280 SSD Processor and support for SATA 6Gbps with backward compatibility for SATAII.
Two of the SSDs are in the Force Series 3 line and feature asynchronous flash memory technology with read/write speeds of 550Mbps and 520Mbps and 85K Random Write IOPS. One comes in 180GB, which is positioned as a logical step up for those using 120GB SSDs, and the 480GB model is designed to completely replace slower HDDs without the need for a hybrid SSD/HDD setup.
The Force Series GT model (also 480GB) has ONFI synchronous flash memory with read/write speeds of 555Mbps and 525Mbps with 85K Random Write IOPS and is designed for high-performance applications such as video editing and gaming.
Suggested retail prices are $249 (180GB) and $799 (480GB) for the Force Series 3 models and $999 for the Force Series GT 480GB (pictured below).
