Corsair Silently Launched Force LE SSD Product Page
Bohs Hansen / 4 years ago
As I was surfing around the internet tonight, looking what’s new and what I might have missed, I came across a product page that I hadn’t seen before. I quickly checked my press releases and couldn’t find anything there either and that is rare. The new product that Corsair silently listed on their website is the Corsair Force LE solid state drive built with the latest TLC NAND technology.
Triple-Level-Cell NAND allows for bigger drives at a lower cost without sacrificing much performance, allowing more users to enter the world of SSDs and reap the benefits of solid storage over mechanical ones. The Corsair Force LE is listed with great features such as SmartECC and SmartRefresh for reliable data retention and error correction, low power consumption thanks to TLC and DEVSLP power saving mode as well as dynamic wear-leveling and garbage collection. Corsair’s SSD Toolbox software is also listed to be compatible with these new drives.
You will be able to get the Corsair Force LE with 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB capacity and the series is rated for up to 560MB/s sequential reads and 530MB/s writes. The random QD32 performance is rated at 85K IOPS reading and 60K IOPS writing; those aren’t bad figures at all.
The drive is backed by a 3-year warranty and the 960GB model has a TBW rating of 240TB, 0.87 drive writes per day (DWPD). There was no price or availability listed on the product page.
