New SSDs offer speed and storage capacity
Corsair has gone official with a new line of SSDs sporting toggle NAND and SandForce SF-2200 controllers. The Force Series GS SSDs promise fast overall performance and will ship in capacities of 180 GB and up.
Corsair claims that the random write speeds are up to 90,000 IOPS. The Force Series GS SSDs use SATA 6Gb/s connectivity and support TRIM to help maintain that performance over time. The SSDs are also optimized for low power consumption to help extend battery life when used in mobile devices.
The GS series uses a 2.5-inch form factor and ships with a 3.5-inch adapter for use in desktop computers.
The SSDs in the new Force Series GS are available right now in capacities of 180 GB, 240 GB, 360 GB, and 480 GB. Pricing for the drives is $189.99, $239.99, $349.99, and $489.99 respectively.

I wonder how long would it take for Windows 7 or 8 to boot with 2 of these drives hooked up to SATA 6.0 in Raid 0 configuration?

Meh, I don't think boot speeds matter that much these days for home PCs. As long as you have a SSD it will be fast, and most people including me use Sleep mode. The only time I restart Windows now is after installing updates.
