Based on the success of Corsair's P256 solid state drive, Corsair has decided to launch the new P128 and P64 drive which offers the same performance essentially at a lower cost to consumers.
The P128 SSD drive brings with it a 220MB/s read speed and 200MB/s write speed. Unfortunately the lower density P64 drive only boasts a 120MB/s write speed but still maintains the 220MB/s read speed. Both drives also utilize the Samsung controller IC with 128MB of cache.
Corsair says that the P128 drive is available immediatley while the P64 SSD is expected to be available sometime in early July, both of which are backed by a two-year warranty. Those wishing to read the full press release can do so here.
