During Computex 2012, Corsair has revealed its 4th Generation SSDs, the Neutron Series. The Neutron series features the exclusive new Link_A_Media Devices Controller
The Neutron Series SSDs is the first to feature the LM87800 6Gb/s SSD controller from Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD), a developer of semiconductor SoC (system on chip) solutions for the enterprise and mobile storage market. The drives are available in capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB.
The Neutron Series GTX SSDs are designed with toggle NAND flash memory to deliver up to 90,000 random read and write IOPs. The drive provides sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write. The standard Neutron Series models provides up to 90,000 random read IOPs and 85,000 random write IOPs, with sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 370 MB/s write. Neutron Series SSDs provide impressive read and write speeds with both compressed and non-compressible data regardless of file type.
All Neutron Series models incorporate LAMD's on-the-fly error correction and advanced NAND management technologies, which improve the endurance of onboard flash memory, giving the SSD's enhanced reliability and durability. Also, the Neutron Series GTX drives include adaptive DSP technology, which maintains performance throughout the lifetime of the SSD.

The new SSDs are compatible with desktop and notebook PCs, thanks to their standard 2.5" form factor and slender 7mm height. The thin design fits most standard notebooks, as well as the latest generation of slim notebook designs. The drives also come with a 3.5" adapter to allow easy mounting in desktop PC drive bays. Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX models are backed with a 5-year warranty.
Neutron Series SSDs are expected to be available in July. Pricing will be announced upon product release.
