Further growing its SSD collection, Corsair has introduced three more products
to its family of Force solid-state drives
. The series debuted in March
with 100GB and 200GB options and Corsair expanded the lineup with 60GB, 120GB and 240GB drives in May
– but apparently, there were still a few gaps to fill. Today the company introduced 40GB, 80GB and 160GB iterations of the Force SSD, which apparently boast the same maximum sequential reads of 285MB/s and writes of 275MB/s.
The fresh additions appear to be aimed at Intel's X25-V
units, which just so happen to ship in the same exact capacities – except Corsair says its drives are faster. "In our testing in the Corsair Lab, we found that the new Force Series 40GB SSD outperform competitive SSDs from Intel and Kingston by a wide margin." Naturally, the extra speed won't come free, as the company plans to charge $130, $230 and $450 (about a $20 premium) for its products, which should ship in August.
