Even though the Force GT 240GB is a drive based on an architecture that’s last generation you can easily see why it’s clearly still one of the best performers you can buy. Prices are dropping and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the...

We look at a lot of SSDs around here, maybe even more than anyone else in the world. LSI SandForce isn't going to let anyone make a really bad drive... aside from asynchronous drives, but that's another story. The point is, there is a starting...

Sometimes you make a wish and Corsair makes it come true. Awhile back we reviewed the 180GB Corsair Force GT. The thing that made the 180GB Force GT unique was its controller; the SandForce 2282 and its array of NAND sitting at 24 modules. The...

It's not only fun to get a chance to break down the entire line of Corsair Force GT SSDs, it's pretty revealing as well. When we look at 2MB large block sequential file movement for instance, we see near parity in terms of read/write performance...

The Corsair Force GT Series 180GB SSD is aimed for the next-gen "prosumers"; enthusiasts who demand the best hardware beyond the high-end and flirting with the reliability of business-level products for their home systems. While Asynchronous NAND SSDs...

First off we love that Corsair chose to implement the 2282 controller along with more NAND modules to take advantage of a noticeable performance increase. SandForce Driven drives are flooding the market and outnumber all others so it’s refreshing...

At first glance this drive looks very much like Corsair's Force Series 3 but with a price per GB that's 25% higher. The specs look nearly identical, so how can Corsair demand a premium price for this high-end SATA 6Gb/s...

What makes one SandForce-based SSD different from the others that appear to be just like it? We round up 10 models with 60 GB of capacity to explore the effects of NAND interfaces. We also stumble across some interesting data related to full drives....

After Valentine's Day, SSDs prices fell yet again, and we updated our list to reflect those changes. This month, the best deals are found in the mid-range offering, and there's one bargain in our list for a 240GB SSD that you simply will not...

One of the things you have to be constantly on guard about when reviewing hardware is the tendency to become a little jaded. To accept exceptional performance as the norm, because we're fortunate enough to get to play with some very high performing...

Whether you prefer the consistent performance of a Marvell controlled drive or the raw speed of SandForce drives, Corsair has you covered with the Performance Pro and Force GT series of SSDs at capacities that suit your needs and...

If you are choosing among SSDs based on the SandForce SF-2281/SF-2282 controller, you should consider not only its flash memory type but also its storage capacity as a performance-related factor. A larger-capacity SSD contains more flash devices,...

Even if only slightly more so, Corsair managed to make the fastest 2.5” SATA SSD drive available even faster. The performance difference over the smaller 120GB model may be slight, which was to be expected from a drive using the exact same...

Both the Corsair Force GT 240GB drive and Crucial M4 with its v009 firmware exhibited excellent performance throughout out battery of tests. Overall, the SandForce-based Corsair drive proved to be a somewhat better performer, especially in terms of...

So after reading all the results i am sure many of you are wondering about which SSD is currently the best one in the market. Well if you can afford the extra premium then the RevoDrive3 240GB is without doubt faster than every other SSD in...

The Force GT 240GB is a slightly different animal than the 120GB model; it posts significantly better write performance across the board and was especially noticeable in our real-world benchmarks. The Force GT 240GB goes for about $460 street,...

If you want superb storage performance, Corsair's Force Series GT has your name on it. It is the fastest SSD we've ever tested....

Corsair’s Force GT comes in a bright red chassis, which by Ork logic (in the Warhammer 40K universe) would make it the fastest SSD ever. So is it? The Force GT consists of a 6Gb/s SATA bus, SF-2281 controller, and 16 64Gb Micron 25nm synchronous...

Corsair has really pulled out all of the stops with this drive. It really earns the its “GT” name. It is the single fastest drive we have tested in ATTO with a read score of 557MB/s. Also it performs right up to the advertised 85K IOPS,...
