It was only a few weeks ago that we reported that Zalman were entering the GPU market with some nice looking AMD Radeon GPUs, and now Zalman have entered into a new line of products: solid state drives. The new series is called the F1-series and they've already begun selling in Japan.

The new drives are the usual SandForce SF-2281 controller drives, backed up with MLC NAND flash memory. The F1-series will be available in three different sizes, 60, 120 and 240GB. The drives are priced at priced at 11,980 JPY (US $153), 19,800 JPY ($254), and 39,980 JPY ($513), respectively.

 

The Zalman F1-series of SSDs are capable of delivering read speeds of up to 560MB/sec, and up to 530MB/sec writes. Both the 60 and 120GB drives offer 4K random write performance of 30,000 IOPS while the 240GB drive ramps up a bit to 45,000 IOPS. It's good to see Zalman entering a new market, Corsair did the same a few years ago and look at them now. They're a forced to be reckoned with in a few different markets now, SSDs, cooling, cases, and power supplies.
