G.Skill Fleshes Out Phoenix Pro Series SSDs with New Capacities

Paul Lilly

Memory maker G.Skill on Thursday announced a handful of new capacities to its existing Phoenix Pro series solid state drives (SSDs), including 40GB, 80GB, and 160GB models. These new capacities, along with G.Skill's existing 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB models all come built around the mighty SandForce SF-1200 controller, which has become an increasingly popular option on higher end SSDs.

G.Skill is following in the footsteps of other SSD vendors now offering more capacities to choose from, particularly focusing on smaller drives intended as affordable boot drives.

"After impressing the G.Skill engineering team, the extremely high performance of the Phoenix Pro 40GB drives in RAID 0 offers the ultimate price-to-performance package, along with the additional benefits of SSDs," said Benson Chun, Senior Product Manager at G.Skill.

The 40GB variant offers read and writes speeds up to 285MB/s and 270MB/s, respectively, while other capacities check in with slightly faster writes at up to 275MB/s.
