Corsair is once again expanding upon its SSD product line with the all-new Extreme series
. Available in 32, 64 and 128GB capacities, the aptly-named drives combine an Indilinx Barefoot controller, multi-level cell storage from Samsung, and 64MB of on-board cache to deliver “blistering, stutter-free performance.”
Corsair is quoting sequential read and write speeds of up to 240MB/s and 170MB/s respectively, for its X128 drive, while the lower-capacity X64 and X32 variants promise sequential read speeds of up to 220MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 135MB/s. In addition, the company notes that all Extreme series SSDs are backed by a two-year warranty and feature end-user upgradable firmware to allow for new features to be added, such as the upcoming TRIM command
for Windows 7 and other operating systems.
Although Corsair doesn’t mention pricing details on the press release, a quick search online seems to suggest that the 128GB model will retail at around $413.99, the 64GB for around $242.99, and the 32GB for $159.99.
