Corsair Launches Force Series Solid-State Drives

By DE Editors

Corsair has announced the Force Series of SSDs, providing SATA II performance based on SSD Processor technology from SandForce Inc.

By using the SandForce SF-1200 SSD processor combined with MLC flash memory, the Corsair Force Series of solid-state drives deliver performance figures of up to 280MB/sec read and 260MB/sec write, according to the company.

“The Force Series are the fastest SSDs that Corsair has launched to date,” says Kevin Conley, vice president of Engineering at Corsair. “We have been very impressed with the SandForce SSD Processor innovations in the months that we have been working with them, and we can’t wait to get these extraordinarily fast SSDs into the hands of our most demanding customers.”

The Force Series of SSDs are available in capacities of 100GB and 200GB and support the TRIM command in Windows 7, which helps to maintain performance over the drive’s lifetime.
