Corsair wasn't short of new products at this year's CES, but there's one that managed to slip under our radar; a new range of SSDs.
The drives, dubbed the Performance 3 Series, are Corsair's first to feature a SATA 6Gbps interface and will be available in 64GB, 128GB (pictured) and 256GB capacities.
Breaking away from the manufacturer's recent tradition, the Performance 3 Series doesn't utilise SandForce innards and instead opts for a Marvel 9174 controller. All three models will feature a 128MB cache, and Corsair quotes impressive read and write speeds of 480MB/s and 320MB/s, respectively, for the range-topping 256GB drive, 410MB/s and 210MB/s for the 128GB model, and 365MB/s and 110MB/s for the smallest 64GB offering.
TRIM support and background garbage collection is built-in, and Corsair reckons the Performance 3 Series is the ideal companion for Intel's SATA 6Gbps-capable Sandy Bridge chipsets.
There's no mention of pricing, but we do know the drives will be available later this month and we expect two of them in a RAID 0 configuration to storm past the 800MB/s mark.
