Corsair Force Series GT 90GB
Force Series 3 and Force Series GT priced at $159 and $199 respectively

Another day, another SSD is released. The steady stream of ultra-fast SSDs into the consumer market is becoming rather routine, however, Corsair today is claiming that it has the world's first 90GB SATA 6Gb/s devices.

The Force Series GT offers read speeds of 555MB/s and write speeds of 505MB/s. The Force Series 3 is just a step behind with read and write speeds of 550MB/s and 500MB/s respectively.

"We’re happy to add the world’s first 90GB SSD to our product lineup," said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "With 50% more storage capacity than our 60GB models and at pricing significantly lower than our 120GB models, they help make the Force Series 3 and Force Series GT among the most robust and flexible SSD lines on the market." 

The Force Series 3 and Force Series GT are priced at $159 and $199 respectively.

That being said though - that $159 one will probably be the first SSD I ever buy =D

Yeah, been waiting for quite a while for a decent performer with an acceptable capacity.

Why were you waiting? An intel 80 GB G2 SSD was 200$ last year, and you could have bought a 80GB intel 320 series for 160$ anytime in the last few months.

Probably has other benefits such as significantly higher iops.

I would have thought so as well, but checking the links out, Corsair lists both as 85k.

Cant just be 5 megs, something tells me actual real world review performance will leave a bigger gap than that.
