Corsair unleashes the Force SSD line

Forget about the just-announced Corsair Reactor and Nova SSDs because you’re not going to want those after you hear about the upcoming Force models. This new line forgos the Indilinx Bareboot controller for the faster SandForce SD-1200 processor, which enables the Force line to read at 285MB/s and write at 275MB/s. Yeah, that’s quick. Trim support is also present on the SATA II drives as long as you’re running a Trim-friendly OS like Windows 7. Don’t expect all this SSD goodness to be affordable, though.

The Force series will feature 100GB and 200GB models at launch, but Corsair has yet to announce their prices. However seeing as the slower and smaller Nova 128GB model retails for $369, it’s safe to assume that the new Force drives will retail well north of that price-point. We should find out shortly. The Force line is expected to be available within two weeks.
