Corsair has SSDs for all sorts of needs from simple and small boot drives to high-capacity drives that can be used for storage and the OS on your notebook or desktop computer. Corsair is also a big name in the RAM business for PCs and other users. Corsair has announced today that it is adding a pair of new capacity SSDs to its Force Series offerings. The new SSDs are the F90 and F180 and they share many of the same features of their other family members the F60, F120, and F240.


The new SSDs both use the Sandforce SF-1200 SSD processor with read speeds up to 285MB/sec and write speeds up to 275MB/sec. Corsair also claims that the SSDs are good for 50K IOPs with 4K random writes. Both of the new SSDs support TRIM in Windows 7 and are shipping right now. The F90 will sell for $189.99 and the F180 will sell for $399.99.

"Corsair's Force Series of SSDs have become extremely popular with enthusiasts and gamers, and with these two new capacities we can offer our customers greater flexibility to choose the capacity that best suits their budget," stated Thi La, VP of Memory Products at Corsair. "The 90GB and 180GB capacities neatly fill the gaps in the current family, which now ranges from 40GB all the way to 240GB."
