Corsair today announced the first shipments of the Force Series GT line of solid-state drives.
Designed for enthusiasts, the new Force Series GT uses the new SandForce SF-2280
SSD Processor, with native support for SATA 6Gb/s (SATA 3), combined with ONFI
synchronous flash memory. Force Series GT SSDs deliver out-of-box performance of
up to 85K Random Write IOPS, read speeds of up to 555 MB/s, and write speeds of
up to 525 MB/s. The use of synchronous flash memory makes the Force GT Series
particularly adept at reading and writing non-compressible data, such as video
and music files, Corsair claims.
All Force Series GT models are also backward compatible with SATA 2, and include
a 3.5" adapter for use in both notebook and desktop PCs.
