Marvell today announced the introduction of its first native Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) solid-state drive (SSD) controller, the 88SS1093. The Marvell 88SS1093 NVMe SSD controller delivers high-performance solid-state storage solutions with a fully Flash-optimized architecture overcoming the SAS/SATA performance limitations by optimizing hardware and software to take full advantage on NAND and addressing the needs of data centers and client systems that utilize next-generation PCIe 3.0 SSD storage. The 88SS1093 also integrates Marvell's third generation NANDEdge error-correcting, low-density parity check (LDPC) technology for higher reliability and endurance boost that was previously announced with Marvell's fifth generation SATA SSD controller, the 88SS1074.

Wonder how this compares to SF3700? Marvell's controllers aren't renowned for being high performance, but the 88SS1093 will definitely be cheaper and if it can do say 1,600MB/s against SF3700's 1,800 MB/s... well, a lot of people will go for the Marvell controller.

Actually some Marvell controllers are renowned for performance and that is why Plextor has used them in their top SSD drives. I'd take Marvell over SandForce in most applications.
