Corsair Neutron Series SSDs provide sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write
Corsair today announced the Neutron Series solid-state drives (SSDs), the industry’s first consumer SSDs to feature the LM87800 6Gb/s SSD controller from Link A Media Devices (LAMD). Available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB, Neutron Series GTX SSDs are designed with toggle NAND flash memory to deliver up to a super-high 90,000 random read and write IOPs (input/output operations per second), which speeds up data-intensive tasks like video and image editing. These drives also provide superior sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write, for lightning fast file access. The standard Neutron Series models, available in 120GB and 240GB capacities, provide up to 90,000 random read IOPs and 85,000 random write IOPs with sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 370 MB/s write.
All Neutron Series models incorporate LAMD’s powerful on-the-fly error correction and advanced NAND management technologies which improve the endurance of onboard flash memory, giving the SSD’s enhanced reliability and durability. The new SSDs bring broad compatibility for desktop and notebook PCs thanks to their standard 2.5″ form factor and slender 7mm height. The drives also come with a 3.5″ adapter to allow easy mounting in desktop PC drive bays. Neutron Series SSDs are expected to be available in July. . Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX models are backed with a 5 year warranty. Pricing will be announced upon product release.
