Earlier in the week Corsair announced the latest addition to their Storage Solutions line with a monster 256GB SSD.
The drive, which will go by the name P256, will be one of the first to use Samsung’s new multi-level cell flash chips, and Controller IC technologies. Along with this, it’ll have a 128MB cache, and Native Command Queuing support. The drive also sports a read and write speeds of up to 200MB/sec.
“The Corsair Storage Solutions P256 delivers the best computing experience of any single storage drive available today,” stated John Beekley, Corsair’s VP of Applications Engineering. “Using the P256 results in immediate and dramatic improvements in system startup and shutdown, game level loading, application startup, and many other everyday tasks. Additionally, the P256 is more durable and reliable than hard disk drives, and has been shown in the Corsair Labs to provide up to 25% longer battery life in portable computers.”
If you’re looking to pick up one of these drives today, it won’t be cheap, but you can do it for $699 over at Newegg.
