One of the great things about SSDs is that they’re pretty speedy when it comes to reading and writing data, and if you were in the market for a new SSD for your computer, Corsair has unveiled their new Force LS Series SSD that will arrive in three different storage capacities. The new SSDs by Corsair will come in a 2.5” form factor and will measure a pretty thin 7mm. It will utilize Toshiba’s 19nm NAND flash memory and will also use Phison SATA 6 Gb/s controllers instead of the LSI SandForce controllers, which had been previously used in Corsair’s lineup of SSDs.
The new SSDs offered by Corsair boast read and write speeds of 555 MB/s and 535MB/s respectively. It will also support TRIM, garbage collection, SMART functions, along with built-in dynamic and static wear-leveling algorithms. The LS series SSDs will come in three sizes as previously mentioned, which includes 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB. It is apparently ready for purchase via retailers and will be priced at $69.99, $109.99, and $199.99 respectively.
