Corsair adds three new capacities to Force SSDs

Corsair on Wednesday said it has added three new capacities to its Force Series solid-state-drives first introduced in May. The new capacities include 40GB, 80GB and 160GB models. Each uses the same SandForce SF-1200 SSD Processor, and at their best peak at 285MB per second in sequential reads and 275MB per second for writing.

The 2.5-inch drives use SATA II and join the currently available 60GB, 100GB, 120GB, 200GB and 240GB SSDs. The new 40GB Force SSD will cost $130, the 80GB $230 and the 160GB version $450 when they launch in the near future. [via PCLaunches]

    Don't buy this!.w91t.com/ wiDt

    I've tried a few different SSDs, and the OWC Mercury Pro Extreme is much better than all of them, for virtually the same price, too!

    Full Disclosure: I am not associated with OWC or Mac Performance Guide. I just bought the OWC and it rocked all over the Corsair P128 it replaced!

    You can buy OCZ Vertex 2 or Corsair Force Series


    Corsair Force Series uses same SandForce 1200 series Controller as OWC Drives, Corsair P128 uses different Controller, i think it is samsung, therfore performance is different
