Corsair's Neutron Series GTX and Neutron Series solid-state drives (SSDs) are now available for purchase.
Announced last June at Computex, the Neutron and Neutron GTX SSDs are powered by the LM87800 SSD controller from Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD).
Neutron GTX SSDs deliver up to a 90,000 random read and write IOPs (input/output operations per second) and sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write. The standard Neutron Series models provide up to 90,000 random read IOPs and 85,000 random write IOPs with sequential speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 370 MB/s write.
The Neutron and Neutron GTX drives also feature on-the-fly error correction and advanced NAND management technologies to improve the endurance of their flash memory. The Neutron Series GTX models also include adaptive DSP technology which maintains performance throughout the lifetime of the SSD.
Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX SSDs are now available worldwide in 120 GB and 240 GB capacities. The Neutron Series GTX 480 GB are expected to be available in September.
