G.Skill Announces New SandForce-powered SSDs

G.Skill has revealed three new capacities to its Phoenix Pro series SSD in 40GB, 80GB and 160GB models.

The key magic behind these drives is the SandForce SF-1200 SSD controller that's been tuned for a 4k random write speed up to 50,000 IOPS.

"After impressing the G.Skill engineering team, the extremely high performance of the Phoenix Pro 40GB drives in RAID 0 offers the ultimate price : performance package, along with the additional benefits of SSDs." said Benson Chun, Senior Product Manager at G.Skill.

Curious to know how two Phoenix Pro 40GB drives perform in RAID 0? Check it:

Sadly, no pricing or availability yet, but hopefully that increasing competition between SandForce drives will help out the consumer.
