Corsair, a leading supplier of premium PC components, has announced a new series of solid-state drives that is based on controllers from Phison. The new Force LS SSDs will offer performance levels that are mainly limited by Serial ATA-6Gb/s bandwidth, not by NAND flash memory or controller. The drives are aimed at mainstream users.

Corsair Force LS solid-state drives will be available in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities. The new SSDs are based on Phison S9 (PS3109-S9) controller as well as MLC NAND flash with Toggle interface made by Toshiba using 19nm process technology. Corsair guarantees up to 560MB/s read speeds and up to 535MB/s write speeds for the new Force LS drives. Like many modern SSDs, the novelties utilize 2.5”/7mm form-factor.

Corsair’s Force LS family of solid-state drives supports TRIM, background garbage collection, S.M.A.R.T. functions and also feature sophisticated dynamic and static wear-leveling algorithms.

Previously, Corsair utilized controllers from LSI SandForce as well as Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD). The Force LS solid-state drives are the first products from Corsair to use a controller from Phison.

Corsair’s partners will sell Force LS 60GB SSDs for $69.99, 120GB for $109.99 and 240GB SSD for $199.99.

Time for PCIe drives. SATA 3 should die slowly or to remain for HDD backup only.
