Corsair unveils new series of extremely fast SSDs

Corsair Extreme Series SSD

Corsair has just unveiled their new line of solid state drives (SSD) to boost as amongst the fastest drives available today. It sits Indilinx Barefoot controller, Samsung flash memory, and a generous onboard cache technology to record read speeds of 240MB/s and 170MB/s write speeds.

Corsair Extreme Series SSD:

  • Fast – Games and apps load faster, Windows is more responsive
  • Compatible – The Extreme Series uses the proven Indilinx Barefoot controller, found on SSDs installed in tens of thousands of systems worldwide
  • Stutter free – Samsung controller ensures smooth performance, unlike that of cheaper SSDs
  • Silent – No moving parts means zero noise and high reliability
  • Low Power – Longer battery life for laptop users means greater productivity
  • Backed by Corsair – A respected name with a passion for great service and support


  • Maximum sequential read speed up to 240MB/s
  • Maximum sequential write speed up to 170MB/s
  • Indilinx Barefoot controller and Samsung MLC NAND flash for maximum performance
  • 64MB DRAM cache for stutter-free performance
  • No moving parts for increased durability over standard hard disk drives
  • Decreased power usage for cool and quiet operation and increased laptop battery life
  • 100+ Year Life Expectancy (MTBF)
  • User upgradeable firmware
  • Two year warranty

Apparently, this line of SSDs is absolutely not the fastest drives we have seen, but knowing WD’s new line with record speeds at 100/80MB/s read and write have not met half close-even to the new Corsair extreme line speeds. In addition, Intel’s incoming second generation 320 GB SSDs will have a great benchmark to match this kind of drives.

Corsair Extreme Line of SSDs will be in 32/64/128GB capacities but there are no words for availability and pricing yet, but we can expect that it will come with expensive price tags.
