Specifications, Availability and Pricing

As we alluded to in the intro, we don't have a lot of information on the SandForce 1500, but should have the full rundown in the next 24 hours. Because of this we needed to dig and see what info we could pull from the two drives we have on hand, serial numbers 5 and 10.

 

So far we have learned that the RunCore Pro V will be available in 50, 100 and 200GB capacities. For connectivity the Pro V is SATA 3G only. There has been a lot of talk about Marvell and Indilinx's new SATA 6G controllers, but we are starting to hear excuses as to why we were not delivered the product today. As it sits right now, SandForce will have the only next generation solid state controller available for the first few months of 2010.

 

When it comes to pricing and availability, we can only pass along what we have been told. Look to purchase retail drives in February at the earliest. By March the supply should be plentiful, high speed SSDs for all with the bank to indulge your inner go fast needs.
