Corsair Force Series 3 SSD, 85k iOPS, 100% love

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2011: Corsair has debuted their Force Series GT range of Solid State drives and they're quite the performer. First thing you see is that the drive is race car red, so very sexy. Secondly, they're available in 120 and 240GB configurations, thirdly; performance. Performance wise the drives are very, very fast. The Force Series 3 120GB is capable of 550/510MB/sec sequential read/writes with the 240GB slightly faster with 550/520MB/sec sequential read/write performance. Near SATA 6Gbps speeds from a single drive!

Now onto the goodies, if you thought that was impressive; max random 4k write provides insane results of 85k iOPS. This is the faster as OCZ's top "Max IOPS" drive - Corsair has done it again. Even they advertise it as "There's fast, and then there's fast". You tell 'em Corsair.

Thecus ready to bang their 10Gbit BASE-T NAS hammer at Computex

By: Array

Thecus are set to debut their Sandy Bridge-powered, 10Gbit Ethernet NAS lines at Computex. The new 8-bay N8900 is powered by an Intel dual-core i3 2120 @ 3.3GHz with 12-bay and 16-bay models flowing through also. The N12000PRO and N16000PRO will feature Intel's Bromolow architecture, powered by quad-core Xeon E1280's @ 3.5GHz. All I've got to say is "DO WANT".

Another day, another SSD release... it doesn't seem to stop and I love it. OCZ today unveil their new Talos line of Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSDs which are designed for enterprise applications that require ultra-fast, high capacity solutions equipped with multi-level cell (MLC) NAND. Talos brings new strength to OCZ's proprietary Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) technology to storage OEMs.

OCZ whips up a storm with the new Agility 3, Solid 3 SATA III SSDs

By: Array

OCZ has put all of their eggs in one basket and that basket just happens to be the SSD market, that basket is also starting to pay off and the pay off comes in the form of some new SSDs with some impressive performance. The new line of SSDs include a 2.5-inch Solid 3 SATA III SSD and the Agility 3 SATA III SSD. Both of these drives are set to offer twice the performance of previous versions and are also more cost effective than current 6Gbps SSDs on the market.

Intel Smart Response SSD cache tech tested on GIGABYTE Z68

By: Array

Late last week GIGABYTE invited us to the fancy Miramar Garden hotel in Taipei where they were setup to shoot their own promo videos of its forthcoming Intel Z68 based motherboards launch.

 

 

We went along to check them out and snap some photos for our preview of the Z68 UD3H and UD7. Inside the hotel suite GIGABYTE had two identical systems setup with the Z68 UD7 platform with the only difference being that one was configured with an SSD using Intel's new Smart Response caching technology and the other just with a standard hard drive configuration.

 

What is Intel Smart Response Technology? In short since we can't go into extensive detail here, it is in my opinion a way of gaining some of the benefits of an SSD without blowing your bank account or having to settle for limited storage space. The idea is that you can pick up an affordable 20GB SSD, put it in a RAID array with your large spinning hard drive and regular data that is most often accessed is cached on the SSD for quicker access.

It's not like you will see the full benefits of going out and picking up say a high-performance 200GB+ SSD and running your complete OS and programs on it, but in the video above, you can see there are some gains to be had and at what should turn out to be a reasonable cost of entry.
