Default Corsair's New Force Series 3 SSDs Get Jiggy with Old School Prices

Quote:


Market research nerds predict that by the end of 2012, solid state drive pricing will have fallen to $1 per gigabyte. We're not quite there yet, but in the meantime, Corsair just launched its new Force Series 3 SSDs, a new line of drives the company claims offers SATA 3 performance for near SATA 2 pricing. Or in other words, the Force Series 3 line represents an almost free performance gain over last gen SSDs.

Build around the latest-generation SandForce SF-2281 controller, the Force Series 3 models take advantage of the SATA 6Gbps interface with up to 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write speeds, 85,000K IOPS, and faster boot and application load times than SATA 3Gbps drives, Corsair says. Each model comes with a 3.5-inch adapter, so both desktop and notebook players can get in the game.

"With the rapid market adoption of SATA 3, there's strong demand for affordably priced SSDs that can take advantage of the enhanced performance it provides," said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "Our new Force Series 3 SSDs provide the performance that enthusiasts demand, at price points approaching the current generation of SATA 2 SSDs."

Corsair will begin shipping its Force Series 3 line this month in 60GB ($139), 120GB ($219), and 240GB ($499) capacities.
