Written by Slobodan Simic

Extreme Series 256GB

Corsair has announced a new addition to its Extreme Series of solid state drives, the X256. The newly announced features MLC NAND memory chips, Indilinx Barefoot controller and comes with 64MB of on-board cache.

The new drive doesn't actually bring anything new as we already saw Corsair's Extreme Series in action and these drives are rated at maximum sequential read and write speeds of up to 240MB/s and 170MB/s. The drive is based on the same specs as many other SSDs on the market as it features Indilinx Barefoot controller and comes with 64MB of on board cache.

The only difference is the warranty period which is in Corsair's case limited to two years, and the actual price which is currently listed at €610,31, quite pricey if you ask us. You can find it listed and compared to other 256GB drives here.
