There no doubt that the most exciting news we learned about at CES 2011 came from SandForce. As it sits now the slowest part of your PC is the storage system. Any leaps of performance in this area have large effects on the surrounding components. When you have a faster storage system you gain additional production and a better user experience since wait time is decreased.

Today's current crop of SSDs already allow for faster operating system boot times and near instant application load times. On a standard platter drive loading a large program like Photoshop can take 10 seconds or more, but with a newer SSD Photoshop loads before your finger is taken off the left click button. With load times that fast application developers can insert more features into their software, making the application more powerful.

SandForce's first run in the SSD controller market was the SF-1000 Series that consisted of the SF-1200 consumer controller and the SF-1500 enterprise controller. The two controllers were the same hardware, but differed by the options enabled in the internal programming. The consumer SF-1200 quickly gained market acceptance with several SSD manufacturers choosing to develop products based on the consumer design.

2010 was not only SandForce's break out year, but the year in which SandForce became an industry leader. In order to do that, SandForce needed to engineer a product that was innovative and offer a significant increase in performance to the competitions products, while doing so at a lower cost. That is exactly what SandForce managed to do.

Today SandForce is launching two new consumer products designed to build upon the success of the SF-1200. The SF-2200 will be the successor for the high end enthusiast market, and the new SF-2100 will occupy the quickly emerging mainstream SSD market.

We have a lot of information to share with you today, so let's get started.
