Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Corsair is offering the Force GT in three capacity sizes right off the bat; 60GB, 120GB and 240GB. Today we're looking at the 120GB model. The 120GB Force GT sits in the sweet spot, it costs less than 300 USD and offers enough capacity for you to install Windows, Office and a few games to get started. Corsair claims a read speed of 555MB/s and write speed of up to 515MB/s. These are very high numbers even for a new SATA III SandForce controlled drive. In order to achieve peak performance you will need to pair the drive with a native SATA III chipset like Intel's Z68.
Not listed on the specification sheet is the part that we're finding the most important with these new SandForce SF-2281 controlled drives, the type of flash it's paired with. The Corsair Force GT uses IMFT 25nm synchronous flash, the same found in the baseline Vertex 3. The Force 3 uses asynchronous flash and while that drive performs very well out of the box, it slows down considerably when data is present on the drive. The new GT model still slows down, but not to the same degree.
At the time of writing Newegg lists the 120GB Corsair Force GT at 289.99 USD and the 60GB model at 144.99. The 240GB model was MIA at the time of writing at Newegg and Amazon. Adding value to the total package, Corsair includes a standard 3 year warranty and an all-important desktop adapter bracket.
