The Neutron Series XTi utilizes a dedicated quad-core controller for top tier top tier speeds with sustained performance and low command latency. The result is exceptional transfer speeds of up to 560 MB/sec, 540 MB/s sequential write, 4KB random read of up to 100,000 IOPS and 4K random write of up to 90,000 IOPS; up to the tasks of today's most demanding end-users.

Designed for consistent performance the Neutron Series XTi handles very high sustained transfer rates with ease, enabled by an expanded cache making it possible to capture and edit professional Full HD and 4K uncompressed video in real-time, as well as play PC games with absolute maximum detail levels.

The Neutron Series XTi is also equipped with end-to-end data path protection, ensuring data is protected against corruption from the host to the NAND gate. Combined with power loss protection with advanced SmartFlush and GuaranteedFlush technologies as well as a host of error correction technologies, the Neutron Series XTi secures your drive for an ultra-consistent and reliable experience.

Specifications:
  • High Performance Quad-Core SSD Controller: Quad-core processor for top tier performance with low command latency and sustained performance.

Let's wait and see how much it'll cost though. Doubling the price for 960GB drive takes us to $660 which is a lot of money to spend on a drive...

So is over 850€ for a Samsung 850 Pro 2TB... But with Corsair and one another, there will be 3 whole SSD drives with capacity of 2TB...

Man, dem prices.

What makes these worth the price premium? A decent 1TB drive can be had for $215-240 today. Why is this one $330?

Looks like it

Because it's Corsair?
Note that this is an MLC and not a TLC drive, which means it won't be a budget drive.

Then again, the Neutron XT 960GB has a MSRP of $530 and retails for $420 or less, so there's clearly a huge difference between MSRP and actual retail price. Let's hope it's the same for these.

All these buzzwords for SATA SSDs. Blistering quick controller? We've been capped on this bus for half a decade now. Just bring the prices down for high capacity drives. That's all anybody cares about now. With games creeping easily over 50GB a pop I filled 1TB of SSD storage space quick but I'll be damned if I pay 300 bucks for a 2TB SSD when I can get a 6TB HDD for that much to put in my server.

It'll be the same size as our standard XT unit, 7mm.

Is there a standard for certification for use in a server, or is that marketing hype by others?

Yeah. Though 5 is also pretty good considering most still sell them with only 2 or 3 years warranty.
