Over the last couple of weeks we`ve seen some pretty amazing SSDs. You know when you are doing one thing, but really want to work on something else? That is what I`ve been going through these last couple of weeks. The reason why is because Corsair has taken another approach in order to achieve modest performance improvements. We`ve seen the SandForce SF-2282 controller used on a retail consumer drive one other time, but it`s implementation was identical to the SF-2281 configuration. The SF-2282 is identical to the 2281 in every way except one, the number of byte lanes, moving from 8 to 16. We`ve speculated for some time that the SF-2282 was used on most if not all 480GB models, but we`ve yet to see one to confirm. Ironically we`ll have our first 480GB drive in the lab tomorrow."
