Corsair today announced that they’ll be previewing their new line up of Solid State Drives, the Force GT series at their booth at CeBIT 2011. The new Force GT series will be based on the updated SandForce chipsets and will support the SATA 6GB/s (SATA 3) standard thus delivering much higher read and write speeds for the most demanding enthusiasts out there.
“With the rapid adoption of systems with SATA 3 support, enthusiasts are demanding SSDs that can take advantage of the dramatic increase in throughput over SATA 2,” said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. “The new Force GT SSDs can deliver up to twice the speed of the fastest SATA 2 drives, making them ideal for high-performance systems.”
“Corsair and SandForce have been working together closely, and I am thrilled that Corsair has selected the SF-2000 SSD Processor family for their new set of enthusiast-class solid-state drives,” stated Thad Omura, VP of Marketing at SandForce. “The new Force GT SSDs will enable Corsair's performance-obsessed customers to break new ground in storage subsystem performance.”
The new Force GT SSDs are expected to be released as early as Q2 2011. There are no details yet about the pricing and the variety of capacities available, but we’re hoping we hear from Corsair on that end soon.
