FREMONT, California — December 2, 2010 — Corsair®, a worldwide
designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming
hardware market, today announced two additions to its award-winning
Force Series™ SSD family. The new models include the F90 and F180 Force
Series SSDs, with densities of 90GB and 180GB respectively.
These latest additions to the Corsair Force Series are built
using the Sandforce SF-1200 SSD Processor, which provides exceptional
performance, including read speeds of up to 285MB/sec and write speeds
of up to 275MB/sec, with a 4K random write throughput of up to 50,000
IOPs. This is the same level of performance as that of enterprise-level
SSDs, and results in unmatched system responsiveness.
"Corsair’s Force Series of SSDs have become extremely popular with
enthusiasts and gamers, and with these two new capacities we can offer
our customers greater flexibility to choose the capacity that best suits
their budget,” stated Thi La, VP of Memory Products at Corsair. "The
90GB and 180GB capacities neatly fill the gaps in the current family,
which now ranges from 40GB all the way to 240GB."
The F90 and F180 Force Series SSDs all implement the ATA TRIM
command, supported by Windows® 7, which helps to maintain optimal
performance over the drive’s lifetime.
The F90 and F160 Force Series
SSDs are available immediately from Corsair’s worldwide network of
authorized distributors and resellers. The MSRP of the F90 and F180 is
$189.99 and $399.99, respectively.
