It was just a few days back that Corsair announced the news of their upcoming release of the F90 and F180 solid state drives, both member of their Force Series of SSDs with capacities of 90 and 180GB respectively.

The 4k random write thoroughput of the F90 and F180 has now been increased to a thoroughput of up to 50,000 which now matches that of enterprise-level SSDs and this is done through a recent release of SandForce firmware only available in new drives. In fact, we can even say that this firmware equals and sometimes surpasses that of the SF-1500 drive and a little known fact is that the SF-1200 and SF1500 are actually identical processors in hardware composition.
