Corsair announces two new SSDs
P128 and P64 with Samsung controller
Corsair has announced two new models in its performance line of SSDs, the P128 and P64. Both are 2.5-inch units and feature Samsung's controller, 128MB of cache and MLC NAND chips.
The 128GB P128 offers read and write speeds of up to 220 and 200MB/s which is a nice number considering its current list price of €291 in Europe. The combination of this price and those write and read speeds numbers makes this Corsair SSD one of the most appealing 128GB SSD drives on the market, neck and neck with similarly spec'd drives from Samsung and SuperTalent.
The 64GB P64 should offer read and write speeds of up to 220 and 120MB/s, but the price of this one is still unknown as it will start to ship next month. Both drives have a MTBF of 1 million hours and will be backed by a two-year warranty.
It looks like Corsair scored quite a deal with Samsung as these drives are a very good offer, considering the price and transfer speeds. We just hope that its performance is as good as its price.
