Written by Slobodan Simic

Here comes the SF-2000

In the wake of Intel's 3rd-gen SSD preview, Sandforce has also announced its second generation of SSD controller, the SF-2000 series. The new series of SSD controllers brings multiple improvements when compared to the quite well known SF-1200 and SF-1500 controllers, and even comes with native support for SATA 6.0Gbps interface.

The rest of the features for the SF-2000 series controllers include support for capacities of up to 512GB, support for MLC, eMLC and SLC NAND chips, support for Asynch, Toggle and ONFi2 Flash interfaces with data rates of up to 155 Mega Transfers per second, enhanced dual-ported SAS bridge support, TCG Enterprise security with selectable multi-banded 256/128-bit AES encryption, Advanced ECC Engine correcting up to 55 bits per 512-byte sectore, and power and performance throttling options.

When it comes to performance, the new SF-2000 series controllers will offer up to 60,000 IOPS of sustained random read/write and up to 500MB/s for sequential read and write performance.

For starters, Sandforce will roll out SF-2300 for industrial storage solutions and the SF-2500 and SF-2600 for enterprise SSD market. The version for the consumer market hasn't been announced yet but we are sure that usual suspects like OCZ are already on it and we might see something pretty soon.

Wonder if it is capable of doing TRIM while in RAID0. A 4 way RAID0 PCie Revodrive of this thing would be interesting.

Interesting is an understatement. Drool worthy is closer to the truth. :)

As an aside, I was under the impression that the lack of Trim support under RAID was a RAID controller firmware issue, Not the drive. Correct me if I am mistaken..
