Illustration for article titled Corsairs Force Series SSDs Are the Fastest in Its Class With 280MB/s Reads

These Force Series SSDs from Corsair have up to 280MB/s reads and 260MB/s writes, which are supposedly "class-leading". Even if it's not the fastest solid state drives on the market period, it's the fastest Corsair's ever made.

The drives will be available in 100 and 200GB sizes in about two weeks, and will support SATA II 3.0Gb/s. No prices for these yet, but our guess is you're going to have to pay a little more for the higher performance. In comparison, Corsair's other 128GB drives run around $400-500, depending on where you shop. [Corsair]

DISCUSSION

Am I the only one who's confused by the lack of standardization in SSD size? Some follow an 8 or 16 bit integer and others seem to go in increments of 20.
