Corsair Announces Additions to Force SSD Series: F90 and F180

Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced two additions to its award-winning Force Series SSD family. The new models include the F90 and F180 Force Series SSDs, with densities of 90GB and 180GB respectively.

These latest additions to the Corsair Force Series are built using the Sandforce SF-1200 SSD Processor, which provides exceptional performance, including read speeds of up to 285 MB/sec and write speeds of up to 275 MB/sec, with a 4K random write throughput of up to 50,000 IOPs. This is the same level of performance as that of enterprise-level SSDs, and results in unmatched system responsiveness.

"Corsair’s Force Series of SSDs have become extremely popular with enthusiasts and gamers, and with these two new capacities we can offer our customers greater flexibility to choose the capacity that best suits their budget,” stated Thi La, VP of Memory Products at Corsair. "The 90GB and 180GB capacities neatly fill the gaps in the current family, which now ranges from 40GB all the way to 240GB."

The F90 and F180 Force Series SSDs all implement the ATA TRIM command, supported by Windows 7, which helps to maintain optimal performance over the drive's lifetime.

The F90 and F160 Force Series SSDs are available immediately from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. The MSRP of the F90 and F180 is $189.99 and $399.99, respectively.

90GB is an interesting size. $190 is a bit too much for it tho, even at those speeds and with TRIM.

Coming next month, the NameYourSize SSD line! Seriously, if somebody is going to drop $150+ on an SSD, offering a $190 and $220 option is stupid. I was happy with 32/64/128/256.

No. Now get some tourniquet bandages and start hacking away.

Sure, by then 200 GB will be worthless, you won't even be able to use it as a boot drive. Then the question you'll ask is
"In my life time, will I see an SDD that is over 2 TB and won't cost an arm and leg? (I'm 26)".
