Corsair to enter SSD market

Posted on Tuesday, January 20 2009 @ 16:08:34 CET by

A couple of months ago Corsair said it doesn't make sense yet to enter the SSD market but a new report from Hexus indicates the memory maker will jump into the market this year. The site got their hands on a photo of Corsair S128 2.5" solid state disk which offers 128GB of storage capacity. Read and write speeds are said to be 90MB/s and 70MB/s, respectively. Second generation drives are expected later this year, the enthusiast models will feature data transfer speeds of over 200MB/s and hardcore users may look forward to SSDs that offer speeds of 400MB/s.
Our sources tell us that Corsair's first generation of solid-state drives will utilise Samsung NAND flash memory and a Samsung controller - hopefully eliminating the stuttering problem plaguing drives using a JMicron controller. Read and write speeds are expected to reach a fairly-average 90MB/s and 70MB/s, respectively.

The second generation, which could be in the pipeline for later this year, will be enthusiast models that feature a tweaked version of existing high-performance drives (we're thinking Intel). Read and write speeds are expected to rise above 200MB/s for enthusiast models, and for the hardcore user there's word of 400MB/s read speeds further down the line.
