Corsair's Force Series of SSDs are some of the best in the world, and decently priced, so Corsair have added another member to the Force Series family. Corsair have just announced the Force Series GS, which sports the current-generation SandForce SF-2281 controller with Toggle DDR NAND in order to create Corsair's fastest SSD yet.
Corsair's Force Series GS sports a maximum random 4K write of up to 90K IOPS, features SATA 6Gbps connectivity, TRIM support and continues its 2.5-inch form factor. Corsair have made the Force Series GS available in four capacities, 180GB, 240GB, 360GB and 480GB with prices ranging from $189.99 to $489.99, depending on the capacity.
