Corsair outs P128, P64 SSD
Corsair recently announced it has added two new products to its Performance Series solid state drive (SSD) family with the 128GB P128 and 64GB P64. Basically smaller capacity versions of the recently released 256GB P256, they offer the same 220MBps read speeds, with the P128 also sharing the same 200MBps write speed. The P64's write speed is rated at a lower 120MBps.
Otherwise, the new SSDs use the same Samsung IC controller and 128MB of cache as the flagship P256. The Corsair P128 solid-state drive is now available through online retailers like Amazon for $355, while the P64 will begin shipping early in July. Pricing on the smaller drive is not yet known.
