SandForce SF-2000 controller to support 500MBps

SandForce will show off its new SF-2000 range of SSD processors at the Storage Networking World Exhibition next week. Meant for enterprise and other heavy-duty tasks, they sport a 6Gbps SATA interface and the industry's first sustained, sequential read and write performance of 500MB per second; most drives reach half this figure. The controller also has a unique 60,000 sustained random read/write IOPS rating.

The controllers will support SAS interfaces, along with single-level, multi-level, and enterprise multi-level cell SSDs. Current and future 30nm and 20nm Flash drives with the right interfaces can be controlled by these as well. They likewise support both 128-bit and 256-bit AES encryption.

It hasn't been revealed when the first SSDs running the SF-2000 controllers will be available for purchase on the market. Companies like OCZ often depend on SandForce chips to push their fastest drives.
