Corsair Force SSD line gets new models  (Source: Corsair)
Corsair SSDs promise lots of performance

Corsair has pulled the wraps off a pair of new SSDs today in the new Force Series. The new SSDs are offered in 90GB and 180GB capacities and promise class leading performance. The 90GB SSD is the F90 and the 180GB offering is called the F180.

The new SSDs use the Sandforce SF-1200 SSD processor. The storage devices promise read speed of up to 285MB/s and a write speed of up to 275MB/s. The random 4K write performance is claimed to be 50,000 IOPs, which is on par with enterprise grade SSDs.

"Corsair’s Force Series of SSDs have become extremely popular with enthusiasts and gamers, and with these two new capacities we can offer our customers greater flexibility to choose the capacity that best suits their budget,” stated Thi La, VP of Memory Products at Corsair. "The 90GB and 180GB capacities neatly fill the gaps in the current family, which now ranges from 40GB all the way to 240GB."

The SSDs support TRIM command with Windows 7 to help maintain performance over the life of the drive. Both of the new SSDs are available right now with the F90 selling for $189.99 and the F180 going for $399.99.

F90 has been out for a while.

I could have sweared I've seen the 90GB version for sale for a while now. Is this a new modification(different FW) or is this article an old news?

Probably old news. If the author knew that there was a previous similar version he undoubtedly would have referenced it to prevent any confusion.

Of course, it could just be a slow day at DT.

You guys sure you're not thinking of the Vertex 2's (which have been out in these sizes for a couple months), or has Corsair also had a 90 and 180GB SF1200 offering?

Press release looks like it came out today (http://vr-zone.com/articles/corsair-launches-force... alot of sites have been parroting it, so cut Shane a break. 90GB & 180GB Force drives have been out for at least a month: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=90913
...but the part numbers are all GB2, so it could be a revision or just Corsair's PR department behind the times.

I have the F40 in my pc, I love it. If I had to do over I might get a larger one, only about 10GB free after installing windows, but then again it was only about $100.

It wakes up from standby in under 5 seconds, no joke... I can hear the 1TB HDD still spinning up..

Too many bad reviews of these units on NewEgg. Give up a small increment in speed and gain a lot of sleep by choosing Intel.

Small increment in speed


erm, I chose a X25MG2 80Gb and am still very happy I did 12 months later, but the diff between 80Mb/s and 275Mb/s seq write is NOT small.
