Corsair today announced the new Performance Pro Series SSD line built around a Marvell SATA 6Gbps controller. These drives are available in 128GB and 256GB capacities, and according to Corsair's own internal testing, they're capable of delivering ATTO sequential read and write speeds of up to 515MB/s and 440MB/s, respectively. Corsair says you can expect similar performance when reading and writing compressed and non-compressed data.
"We are pleased to provide a fast SATA 3 SSD that's designed specifically for real-world performance," said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "High-performance PC users work heavily with media files, and unlike some other SSDs, the Performance Pro can save, load and move music, photos and movies without significantly reduced performance. It offers consistent, reliable speed regardless of whether you're running Windows, OS X or Linux, and whether you’re using a single drive or a RAID configuration."
The Performance Pro Series feature built-in advanced garbage collection routines that Corsair says is ideal for RAID configurations that typically don't support TRIM.
