At any moment in the history of the solid state drives, there's always been an "it" SSD controller chipset – a controller that turns heads and generally dominates the news.Now there's a new pretender to the Barefoot's OEM controller...

Based on the recent Sandforce 1200 controller, Corsair has a very fast SSD in its portfolio. The Forc 100 GByte shows very consistent performance in all our benchmarks which means that there are no major negative performance impacts. Furthermore this...

Man, we are all about SandForce these days. The controller company burst out of stealth mode early this year, and proceeded to rock our socks with every drive that uses its SF-1200 firmware. The Corsair Force F100, like all drives of its ilk, relies...

When it comes down to benchmarking the Corsair Force Series 100GB SSD, I was quite happy with the results that it was able to provide, despite a few benchmarks that gave it a bit of trouble when it was compared to the Mushkin drive. However, it was...

Looking at the value represented by the drive, generally SSDs do not offer much in this area with costs still being high for reasonably low capacities. The F100 is more expensive than drives...

Well at first I was really unsure on how to even give you my opinion on this drive. Some of the results from the tests were good, but others were quite low. After many days of research I found out a few things about some of our benchmarking...

Corsair's Force series SSD leaves a decent impression. The overall baseline performance is certainly fast, and when you look at very specific segments like Random I/O, especially in writes it's where the drive shines over controller solutions...

It is hard to believe that almost two years has passed since we first rounded-up some of the first solid state drive offerings for the PC. Since that time, the landscape has changed dramatically. Capacities have increased somewhat, but performance has...

With the right workload, SandForce's SF-1200 storage controller has enormous potential. All three of the SF-1200-based drives we tested offer solid sequential throughput and very fast random access times across a range of transfer sizes. The SF-1200...

These three new SandForce-1200 based models performed very well in our testing, competing with Intel in IOPS and completely dominating in write performance. The only thing really holding these drives back from total market domination is the price. ...

There is no doubt in our minds that if you are looking for an SSD that offers extremely flexible performance in nearly every discipline, the buck stops at the Corsair Force 100. Throughout our tests, it exhibited class-leading performance and simply...

The Corsair Force series Solid-State Drives (SSDs) are the first from Corsair to feature a controller from Sandforce. Specifically, the 100GB and 200GB models employ the SF-1200 controller which is said to yield better results than the Indilinx...

Her har vi klart testens hurtigste drev. Dette Sandforcedrev ser lækkert ud, men er ikke ligefrem billigt. Så selvom hastigheden trækker op, så hiver prisen noget...

International Review By Ocaholic German on 100

Basierend auf dem aktuellen Sandforce 1200 Controller hat Corsair mit der Force 100 GByte eine sehr schnelle SSD im Portfolio. Generell zeigt sich das Performance-Bild der Force sehr konsistent, sprich in keinem unserer Benchmarks konnte wir...

International Review By Nexthardware on 100

Abbiamo assistito per circa un anno ad un susseguirsi di nuove uscite basate, nel 90% dei casi, su controller Indilinx; controllando i siti dei produttori, possiamo trovare SSD fondamentalmente identici che però sembrano, in ogni situazione, in...

Mit der A-DATA S599 und der Corsair Force haben zwei interessante SSDs den Weg zu uns gefunden – beide setzen auf den SandForce SF-1200-Controller, der unter anderem Features wie eine transparente Komprimierung und AES-Verschlüsselung bietet. Außerdem...
