    Corsair showed off its trio of 2.5-inch SATA SSD lines for this year, consisting of Force 3 series, Force 3 GT series, and Nova 2 series. Among these, Force 3 is already out, and consists of SATA 6 Gb/s SSDs based on SandForce SF-2000 series controllers, doling out transfer speeds of 550 MB/s read and 520 MB/s write. The Force 3 GT features a fine-tuned SF-2000 series controller to deliver transfer rates higher than spec, at 555 MB/s read and 525 MB/s write. Like with Dominator DDR3 memory modules, the GT variants feature the fiery-red body-color. The third line of SSDs is new to us. Called Nova 2 series, this will be Corsair's big push towards propagating SSDs to consumers new to it. The green-colored Nova 2 series SSDs use the SATA 3 Gb/s interface and are driven by a cost-effective controller that gives transfer rates of 260 MB/s read and 240 MB/s write, enough to deliver the awe of SSDs to first-time adopters.

    I sure hope there isn't a big price difference from the Force 3 and the Force 3 GT as the speeds are not that different, and i like the red.
