G.Skill show off Phoenix II, SATA 6Gbps SSD with 550MB/sec speeds

By: Array

G.Skill has shown off their latest and greatest SSD at CeBit, the Phoenix II series. Phoenix II is based on the new SandForce SF-2000 series controller which pushes the Phoenix II to the wall and posts some of the highest transfer speeds for the chipset.

550MB/sec read, 500MB/sec write. G.Skill even went as far as validating these speeds using a session of ATTO disk benchmark to get their message across. Pictures above of the benchmark and a picture below of the actual SSD. Looks like it might be time for me to retire by G.Skill Falcon SSD...

By: Array

OCZ's Vertex Pro 3 is set to put the SSD market on fire by offering a blazing 550MB/sec maximum read and 500MB/sec maximum write speeds. This speed is attained by OCZ using the new SandForce SD-2500 controller which it sports.

The SSD has been tested by a bunch of sites today and it's mostly the same conclusion - this is the shiznit. Anandtech even says it's "the first drive that really needs a 6Gbps interface." The drive isn't available yet and the hardware included is not final, but once it hits retail it's sure to shake things up considerably!

 

Corsair Performance 3 Next Gen SATA III SSD Available Now

By: Array

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!
