Corsair as a brand is very popular and the worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC hardware market, has recently announced the Neutron Series solid-state drives (SSDs). These are the industry's first consumer SSDs to feature the LM87800 6Gb/s SSD controller from Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD), a leader in the development of semiconductor SoC (system on chip) solutions for the enterprise and mobile storage market. Also available in an extreme performance Neutron GTX model, the new SSDs bring professional-grade performance and reliability to PC enthusiasts, content creators, and IT professionals.
Neutron Series solid-state drives announced
Available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB, Neutron Series GTX SSDs are designed with toggle NAND flash memory to deliver up to a super-high 90,000 random read and write IOPs (input/output operations per second), which speeds up data-intensive tasks like video and image editing. These drives also provide superior sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write, for lightning fast file access. The standard Neutron Series models, available in 120GB and 240GB capacities, provide up to 90,000 random read IOPs and 85,000 random write IOPs with sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 370 MB/s write.
All Neutron Series models incorporate LAMD's powerful on-the-fly error correction and advanced NAND management technologies which improve the endurance of onboard flash memory, giving the SSD's enhanced reliability and durability. The Neutron Series GTX drives also include adaptive DSP technology which maintains superior performance throughout the lifetime of the SSD. Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX models are backed with a 5 year warranty. Neutron Series SSDs provide impressive read and write speeds with both compressed and non-compressible data regardless of file type. This is a significant advantage compared to other SSDs in the market which offer quick load times with compressible files, but get bogged down significantly when reading compressed data such as video files.
Neutron Series solid-state drives coming next month
Speaking at the announcement, Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair said “The Neutron Series SSDs, a strategic collaboration between Corsair and LAMD, reflects the shared commitment to performance, quality, and reliability ingrained in our companies. Together we've raised the standard for SSDs, and we have more exciting products on the way.”
Also commenting on the unveiling, Dr. Hemant Thapar, CEO of LAMD said “LAMD has built our reputation engineering high-performance, high-reliability SSD controllers for mission-critical enterprise storage solutions. Now, with Corsair's commitment to delivering innovative, high-performance SSD solutions, we are pleased to bring our advancements in SSD technology to all PC users.”
The new SSDs bring broad compatibility for desktop and notebook PCs thanks to their standard 2.5-inch form factor and slender 7mm height. The thin design fits most standard notebooks as well as the latest generation of slim notebook designs. The drives also come with a 3.5-inch adapter to allow easy mounting in desktop PC drive bays. Neutron Series also support the latest high-speed SATA 6 GB/s and SATA 3 GB/s standards as well as the TRIM command to provide the fastest possible speeds.
These Neutron Series SSDs are expected to be available in July 2012.
