Early last month we learned the Corsair has prepared two new lines of 2.5-inch SSDs. Now, those SSDs, the new Reactor Series and Nova Series, are available immediately from Corsair’s authorized distributors and resellers worldwide.
The Reactors (opens in new tab) have 128MB of onboard cache with its second-generation JMicron JMF612 controller, and read and write speeds are quoted at 250MB/s and 110MB/s, respectively, for the 60GB drive, and the larger 120GB offering will hit 250MB/s and 170MB/s.
Those who want more speed and are fond of the Indilinx Barefoot controller with 64MB of cache can turn to the slightly more expensive Nova series (opens in new tab), also in similar capacities as the Reactor. The quicker model features read speeds of up to 270MB/s and write speeds of 130MB/s on the 60GB model and 190MB/s on the 120GB model.
Both Reactor Series and Nova Series SSDs fully support the TRIM command in Microsoft Windows 7.
