Corsair ultra high-speed Force Series SSDs in 60GB – 240GB Capacities

Corsair has launched three new SSDs (solid state drives) as part of the Force Series.

The three new drives include the F60, F120 and F240 and each has a capacity of 60GB, 120GB and 240GB respectively. Each drive uses the Sandforce SF-1200 SSD processors that allow superior EXX data protection (in the words of Corsair) and excellent write endurance.

All Corsair Force Series SSDs are built using the Sandforce SF-1200 SSD Processors, which provide unparalleled write endurance, superior ECC data protection, and outstanding performance. Corsair engineers worked closely with Sandforce to implement and qualify firmware which guarantees the unusually fast 4K random write performance of 180 MB/s, measured using the ATTO benchmark. This elevated 4K write speed generates 15K IOPs, resulting in excellent system performance and responsiveness. All Force Series SSDs implement the ATA TRIM command, supported by Windows® 7, which helps to maintain optimal performance over the drive’s lifetime.

Speeds achievable with the new Force series drives provide a throughput of up to 285MB/s for read and 275MB/s for write. All drives are capable of these numbers in this series.

It is expected that the drives will launch June 2010 although no pricing details have been provided just yet.
