Corsair Memory, a leading maker of advanced components for personal computers, has announced its new Neutron family of solid-state drives which are based on LM87800 6Gb/s SSD controllers from Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD), a developer of semiconductor system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for the enterprise and mobile storage market.
"The Neutron Series SSDs, a strategic collaboration between Corsair and LAMD, reflects the shared commitment to performance, quality, and reliability ingrained in our companies. Together we have raised the standard for SSDs, and we have more exciting products on the way," said Thi La, vice president of memory products at Corsair.
Corsair Neutron Series GTX SSDs are available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB and utilize toggle NAND flash memory to deliver up to a super-high 90 000 random read and write input/output operations per second (IOPS). These drives also provide superior sequential speeds of up to 555MB/s read and 500MB/s write, for lightning fast file access.
Corsair standard Neutron SSD models are available in 120GB and 240GB capacities, provide up to 90 000 random read IOPS and 85 000 random write IOPS with sequential speeds of up to 555MB/s read and 370MB/s write performance.
All Neutron SSD models incorporate LAMD's powerful on-the-fly error correction and advanced NAND management technologies which improve the endurance of onboard flash memory, giving the SSD's enhanced reliability and durability. The Neutron series GTX drives also include adaptive DSP technology which maintains superior performance throughout the lifetime of the SSD. Neutron and Neutron GTX models are backed with a 5 year warranty.
"LAMD has built our reputation engineering high-performance, high-reliability SSD controllers for mission-critical enterprise storage solutions. Now, with Corsair's commitment to delivering innovative, high-performance SSD solutions, we are pleased to bring our advancements in SSD technology to all PC users," said Dr. Hemant Thapar, chief executive officer of LAMD.
Neutron SSDs are expected to be available in July. Pricing will be announced upon product release.
