SandForce has already proven they are a leader in the SSD market with their successful SF-1000 products introduced in 2010, but the company isn't stopping with just 1 Million controllers shipped. In 2011 the company is expecting to triple their volume. Even before the first retail product ships with the new SF-2000 controller, we can see this being an obtainable goal. The new series is already being talked about (even though the launch was yesterday), and many enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for products.
Retail availability should be late March or early April (you can quit emailing that question to me...you know who you are). With so many options and configurations possible combined with so many partners, there should be several exciting Team SandForce products hitting the market. The competition will also keep the cost of owning a new SandForce SF-2200 low. We already know the Vertex 3 has an MSRP of just 249.99 for the 120GB model and 499.99 for the 240GB model. The SF-1200 debuted at over 400 USD when launched in January 2010 and is now selling for around 200 USD.
