Corsair's New Extreme SSD Line Is Blazingly FastS

Corsair just announced their new Extreme Line of SSDs, coming in 32/64/128GB capacities. So they're not going to win a storage space award, but these little guys are fast—Corsair's claiming read speeds of 240MB/s and 170MB/s write speeds.

They're not the absolute fastest 2.5-inch laptop SSDs we've ever seen, but are definitely right up there at the top. WD's new line, for example, isn't even close to half that speed (100/80MB/s). You can expect them to be expensive, but we don't know exactly how much they'll cost, or when we can expect to see them in stores and laptops, but we'll keep you updated. [Corsair via Crunchgear]
