G.Skill Phoenix EVO SSD  (Source: G.Skill)
SSD has 115GB of storage

The number of SSDs that are hitting the market continue to grow each day. This is a good thing too, the more SSDs and makers of SSDs there are the more competition and the lower prices will go. At the same time, more competition means more innovation to lure in customers as well.

G.Skill has announced its latest SSD storage drive called the Phoenix EVO SSD. The drive uses a SandForce SF-1222 controller and 2xnm NAND flash chips. That means that the drive is speedy and has nice storage capacity as well. The EVO has storage capacity of 115GB, read speed of 280MB/s, write speed of 270MB/s, and will land at authorized dealers this month.

Phoenix notes that it moved from 3xnm to 2xnm chips to improve speed and performance of its drives and to guarantee top reliability and stability. The SSD has a 3-year warranty and the NAND chips are selected from key suppliers for reliability and performance.

“The performance benchmark of G.Skill Phoenix EVO is listed on G.Skill official website. With the information transparency, consumers can easily choose the right product according to their desire and budget,” said Wales Tsai, the G.Skill SSD product manager.

At least they advertise it as 115GB

It looks like other companies are paying attention after the mess OCZ went through with the Vertex 2 and their switch to 64Gbit dies. It's good to see other companies aren't repeating OCZ's mistake.

At least the Vertex 3s are finally shipping.

I'm just sad there's no word on what the price of this would be. Using the cheaper controller, and a rather odd capacity. Hopefully this will be competitively low cost.

It will have to be, G.Skill isn't exactly a popular name in SSDs.

Maybe not, but their memory has been top-notch for years. I always go g.skill on my builds.

Funny you mention that. I had 4 sticks go bad within a couple months. At $50 a stick I wasn't too happy. Mushkin memory is way better.

Mushkin memory is the best, bar none.

But thats besides the point. Give me some of these SSD in raid 1, thanks :D
