Corsair 256GB SSD Announced, Priced

Corsair has just announced a 256GB SSD (Solid State Drive) that can reach speeds of 220MB/s and 200MB/s (read and write, respectively), which is very decent and close enough to the Intel X25M in terms of performance. The pricing is the juicy part: for about the price of an X25-M 160GB, you have 1.6x the storage capacity – at least in theory: we have not verified the performance numbers in a real test. Corsair uses Samsung flash memory in this SSD. Apparently, it’s already available online for about $650.
