Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Corsair is shaking things up a bit with the new Force GS. To start with, the 120GB capacity size was nixed, no 120GB model under the GS flag. The smallest Force GS is 180GB. From there we have 240GB, 360GB and a massive 480GB capacity size. Today we're testing the 240GB capacity size so the 240GB specifications are listed above.
Corsair specs the Force GS 240GB out at 555MB/s sequential read speed, 525MB/s sequential write speed and 90K aligned 4K random write IOPS. I have a feeling we'll surpass all of those today with our testing, but those are the claimed performance.
The Force GS is a 2.5" form factor drive with a standard 9.5mm z-height. Corsair has yet to release a 7mm z-height SSD, but at Computex we saw the upcoming Neutron Series and expect it to bring Corsair into the ultrabook decade.
After a quick search we found the new Force GS 240GB at Newegg for $219.99. The lowest priced model with 180GB of user capacity is at Newegg for $174.99, the 360GB size is $299.99 and the 480GB is $429.99. At this time the Force GS suffers from new product syndrome. In a couple of weeks we could see a price drop at Newegg, but right now, the 240GB model we're looking at today cost the same as the SanDisk Extreme 240GB at $219.99. The Force GT does include some accessories that the Extreme lacks.
When it comes to the accessory package you get Corsair's three year warranty and a nice desktop adapter bracket. The package also includes screws for securing the drive in the bracket and your computer.
