PCMark Vantage smashed with 11 F200s

Corsair managed to break one of the world records thanks to its upcoming Force Series SSDs based on Sandforce controller and one quite impressive testbed. Corsair Team managed to score 32947 points in PCMark Vantage which was enough to take over a first place from SteveRo from Xtremesystems.

Thanks to some liquid nitrogen poured in Kingpin Cooling F1EE LN2 pot the Core i7 980X was overclocked to 5791MHz and paired up with Corsair's Dominator GTX2 memory clocked at 2144MHz with CL7 latencies. The key for record smashing were a total of eleven Force Series F200 200GB SSDs in RAID 0 configuration with Areca ARC-1680D-IX-12 PCI-E RAID controller.

Corsair did a great job there and F200 SSD are clearly some impressive SSDs with impressive sequential and random read/write performance. The Force series is based on Sandforce SF-1200 controller and we can't even start to imagine how good are the SSDs based on the SF-1500.

You can find more about testbed, and entire overclocking details here.
