The Corsair Force GT 240GB
Here we get our first look at the Force GT 240GB. As you can see, the drive is red, a unique color for the latest batch of SandForce based SSDs on the market today.
The Force GT uses an all-aluminum housing, something that is starting to become rare these days after some of the other larger SSD manufacturers have turned to lower cost plastic housings for their products. On the back we see the four mounting points that allow you to install the drive in the desktop adapter bracket and several notebook manufacturers drive sleds.
The side of the drive also has the standard mounting points.
The desktop adapter bracket that's included with the Force GT offsets the drive to the left side. This puts the SATA power and data connectors where they should be and allows you to install the drive in systems that use backplanes.
Here we get our first look at the newly designed PCB used in the new Force 3 and Force GT products. The PCB is quite a bit smaller than the SandForce reference design. This brings all of the components closer together so the timing and data signals don't need to travel as far to get to their destination.
The 240GB capacity size uses sixteen IMFT flash chips, Micron flavored and a single SandForce SF-2281 controller. On this side you can see just how close together the surface mount components are on this new design.
