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.

Most SSD problems that are existant in the near past were mostly because of the motherboards. They did not test for the full SATA 3 speeds - and that shows! Most of them test for speeds upto 400MBPS. Someone has to confirm this, but the fixes provided by the SSD drive vendors is to throttle the bandwidth?

You are spot on, we tested several systems with the new Vertex 3 MaxIOPS and found out that every system that had a BSOD was because of the controller/motherboard and not the SSD. We took the SSD out of the crashing system and dropped it into a system with the same SSD/controller/motherboard that didn't show any problems and voila, the BSOD's where gone. We also ran several tests with a Harddisk and an older SATA 2 SSD on the Systems that experienced these BSOD's, but they worked just fine.
