KingFast Reveals 1 TB C-Drive SSD

KingFast, a Chinese manufacturer, has announced its new 1 TB SSD, ingeniously named the "C-Drive." The drive itself might look like any other 2.5-inch 9.5 mm SSD, but underneath the housing you'll actually find two SSDs. The device contains two 512 GB SSDs, each driven by its own SandForce SD-2281 controller. The two work together to create an internal RAID 0 configuration. While there is no official word on TRIM support, due to the RAID 0 configuration, it is likely that the drive does not support TRIM commands.

The drive has a SATA3 interface, can reach sequential read speeds of 559 MB/s and write speeds of up to 532 MB/s. There was no word on the device's pricing or availability.

    Its been tried before.. The OCZ Colossus. Unfortunately that thing was a big steaming pile. We bought 20 at work for testing and we killed almost 1 every single day... After RMAing 10 or so we just gave up. Hopefully this one is more reliable.
