Icy News: Corsair Accelerator Series Caching SSDs Announced
"Corsair announced a new line of caching SSDs using the NVELO Dataplex software under a new product family called the Accelerator Series. Offered in capacities ranging from 30GB to 60GB, all of these caching solutions are offered at a pricetag under $99. Very similar to the OCZ Synapse caching solution, these SSDs are aimed at customers who want the capacity of a large hard drive but the speed of a fast SSD.
Corsair launched three new drives as part of the Accelerator Series, including a 30GB model for $69, a 45GB model for $84, and a 60GB version for $99. These drives all use a SATA 3.0Gb/s interface, supporting speeds up to 280MB/s write and 270MB/s read and offer three year warranties." -via Storagereivew
This is an interesting product line in general. Several manufactures are trying to push the SSD caching as a way to increase performance and still have a large capacity to work with. If you have a Z68 chipset from Intel, you will be able to use this to boost your system. Let us know what you think about this!
