Corsair Performance 3 Next Gen SATA III SSD Available Now

Corsair Performance 3 Next Gen SATA III SSD Available Now

| Storage News | Posted: Feb 15, 2011 1:46 am

Yesterday I told you that Plextor has their new Marvell controlled, SATA III M2 Series SSD available but we have yet to find one in the wild as of today. We did learn that Corsair managed to beat both Plextor and Crucial to market with their new Marvell drive. The Corsair Performance 3 is now in stock and shipping from Newegg.

 

Prices are as follows, 64GB (164.99), 128GB (319.99) and the massive 256GB (749.99 USD). The Performance 3 Series carries a price premium over the SandForce based Force Series but the Performance 3 drives are a lot faster on paper (we have yet to test a retail unit). The Force Series delivered 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write speeds. The new Performance 3 Series is capable of delivering 430MB/s read and 320MB/s write when a 256GB drive is used.

 

In a few days we will have a big announcement from SandForce. 2011 is going to be a great year for solid state drives, stay tuned!
