Corsair ups Performance Pro SSDs with self-tuning

Corsair Performance Pro

Corsair rolled out a new high-end Performance Pro set of solid-state drives on Thursday to target gamers and serious users that otherwise couldn't consider SSDs. The new models have a Marvell controller that has its own, internal data garbage collection, not just TRIM support. Adding the self-tuning prevents a slowdown over sustained use even on computers whose OS doesn't support TRIM, such as earlier versions of Mac OS X or some forms of Linux.

Performance itself is high, at peak 515MB per second read speeds and 440MB per second writes. Full speed needs an SATA III connection, although it will still fall back to SATA II.

Every drive slots into a typical 2.5-inch notebook bay, although they come with 3.5-inch mounting brackets for desktops. Corsair keeps the capacities narrow at 128GB and 256GB, but is shipping them now at prices of $280 for the 128GB drive and $530 for the 256GB edition.

    trim on osx

    Even Lion doesn't support trim unless you have a SSD coming from Apple itself. You have to patch using an app that modify your system. I have no idea if every SSD are the same but my Corsair F120 is now at 110MB/sec downed from around 230MB/sec after 11 months of usage!
