New SSDs are blazing fast
Corsair over they years has broadened its lineup of SSDs offered to the public, and this week it unveiled fresh offerings at Computex 2012. The new SSDs are fourth-generation devices falling into the flagship Neutron GTX series.
The new SSDs are the first in the industry to feature the LM87800 6Gb/s SSD controller from Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD). The Neutron GTX SSDs are offered in capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, and 480 GB. They use toggle NAND flash memory that promises up to 90,000 random read and write operations per second. The SSDs also promise fast sequential speeds with up to 555 MB/s read speeds and up to 500 MB/s write speeds for the GTX series.
"The Neutron Series SSDs, a strategic collaboration between Corsair and LAMD, reflects the shared commitment to performance, quality, and reliability ingrained in our companies," said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "Together we've raised the standard for SSDs, and we have more exciting products on the way."
Performance for the standard Neutron series drives, offered in 120 GB and 240 GB capacities, are up to 90,000 random read operations per second and up to 85,000 random write operations per second. Sequential read speeds are up to 555 MB/s with sequential writes of up to 370 MB/s. Corsair also notes that the Neutron series SSDs are able to maintain the fast read and write speeds with both compressed and non-compressible data types.
"LAMD has built our reputation engineering high-performance, high-reliability SSD controllers for mission-critical enterprise storage solutions," said Dr. Hemant Thapar, CEO of LAMD. "Now, with Corsair’s commitment to delivering innovative, high-performance SSD solutions, we are pleased to bring our advancements in SSD technology to all PC users."
The SSDs come in a standard 2.5-inch form factor with 7 mm height. The kits also ship with a 3.5-inch adapter to allow the SSDs to be used in desktop computers.
The SSDs are expected to launch in July with pricing announced closer to launch.

RE: SATA speed

Yeah, it'd be hard to cram the RevoDrive into a laptop. Aside from that, RevoDrive is essentially glorified RAID-0. OCZ achieved the performance by combining either two or four SSD modules into a RAID-0 unit. How many of us here would dare to use four drives in RAID-0? Not me. Though I do drool at the prospect to using four RevoDrives in a RAID-10 setup. That'd give the PCIe bus a good workout.
