Corsair outs Nova, Reactor-series MLC SSDs

Still better known for its power supplies and memory, Corsair has recently introduced two new lines of solid state drives, naming them Nova and Reactor. The 2.5-inch Nova drives are available in 64 and 128GB capacities, while the Reactor can be had in 60 and 120GB versions. The Reactors are faster, with a 128MB cache and read speeds of 250MBps as well as 110MBps write speeds for the 60GB model. The 120GB Reactor musters respective 250Mbps and 170MBps speeds. Reactors also have a mini USB interface in addition to the SATA 3.0Gbps connection.

The Novas use MLC NAND chips and have 64MB of cache. Either can write at 215MBps, with the write performance of the 64GB version set at 130MBps and 195MBps for the 128GB model.

The 60GB Reactor costs just over $200 while the 120GB drive is priced at about $400. The 64GB Nova is slightly more expensive, at $220, with the 128GB model costing $415. [via Fudzilla]
