Corsair Launches Fast SandForce Powered SSD

Corsair's been fairly busy lately with the release of multiple SSD products. Today the memory company brings us another one that should look enticing to speed demons called the Force Series of SSDs.

The new Corsair Force SSD line gets its name from SandForce SF-1200 SSD controller, which performs with up to 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write to the MLC NAND memory.

"The Force Series are the fastest SSDs that Corsair has launched to date," stated 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.
 
The Force Series of SSDs will be available sometime in mid-March. Prices weren't announced, but they won't be the SSDs sitting on the cheaper end of things.

    Wow... something I'd finally consider over a Intel drive!
    That is until the Gen3 Intel drives hit the market. =)
