Corsair announce its first SSD’s using a SATA 6Gbps interface

/ 6 years ago

CES was a fruitful event to showcase the latest and greatest products due to the market from leading manufacturer’s and Corsair were no exception with a new range of SSD’s.

The Performance 3 series SSD’s feature a SATA 6Gbps interface which is a first for Corsair and will be available with TRIM support and has background garbage collection.

The drive will come in 3 capacities starting with a 64GB version and 128GB version which should be favoured for RAID configurations and a more expensive 256GB too. All sizes will feature the Marvel 9174 controller, have a 128Mb cache and are said to be perfect for Intel Sandy Bridge chipsets.

Size Read Speed Write Speed
64GB 365MB/s 110MB/s
128GB 410MB/s 210MB/s
256GB 480MB/s 320MB/s

No pricing or availability as of yet, but more information should be available nearer the end of the month.

One thing that we’re looking forward to, is 2 of these performance drives in a Raid 0 configuration, as judging by the speeds, it should be uber quick.
