RunCore have just debuted some new solid-state drives (SSDs) today, which sport the SATA 6Gbps interface. The new series are the Pro-V MAX series and are based on SandForce's SF-2281 controller with the optimized firmware (the Golden FW).

Read and write transfer rates are at 560MB/sec and 520MB/sec, respectively, as well as burst IOPS at 87K while sustained IOPS over 60K. The Pro-V MAX is said to be ideal for use in gaming machines, HPC & datacenter servers, and with those specs, I definitely agree.

The Pro-V MAX series also sports RAISE technology for enhanced reliability and DuraWrite technology. On top of the SATA 6Gbps support, it is of course backwards compatible with SATA 3Gbps and 1.5Gbps. The RunCore Pro-V MAX also supports NCQ, and SMART Command and OS's such as Windows, Linux, Unix, Solaris, and Mac OS.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
