The SSD Review had the opportunity to meet with Robert Pearce, Sr Technical Marketing Specialist of Corsair, this week at Computex Taipei and he had some rather unexpected SSD news to pass on. It appears that Corsair will be releasing an enthusiast line of SSDs known as the Force 3 GT line right on the heals of their new 'Sandforce Driven' Force 3 SSD, the difference between both drives being the use of asynchronous vs synchronous NAND flash memory.
The new GT series sports a 'race car' red outer casing and, much like the recent move of OCZ with their IOPS Max version of the Vertex 3, will contain 3xnm NAND flash memory as well as the already famous Sandforce SF-2281 processor to push things along at 555MB/s read and 525MB/s write with 85,000 MaxIOPS. Its capacities are presently limited to 120 and 240GB versions and we need to give you a heads up, this is an enthusiast SSD and we expect it to be priced as such.
