Corsair today announced the Marvell-based Performance Pro Series SSDs.
The Performance Pro Series, designed with the Marvell SATA 6 Gb/s SSD controller, delivers an ATTO Max performance of up to 515MB/s Sequential Read and 440 MB/s Sequential Write, and promises to sustain similar performance when reading and writing compressed and non-compressible data, such as audio, images, and video files. Additionally, the Performance Pro Series has built-in background garbage collection to allow for consistently high performance even with operating systems that do not support the TRIM command. This integral performance optimization makes Performance Pro SSDs a good solution for RAID configurations, which typically do not support TRIM.
Performance Pro solid-state drives provide fast SATA III connectivity, they are also backward compatible with SATA 2 3GB/s and include an 3.5" adapter for easy installation in both laptop and desktop PCs.
The new Performance Pro Series SSDs are backed by a three-year warranty and are available in 128GB and 256GB configurations from authorized distributors and retailers worldwide.
