Corsair SSDs are 2.5" wide, the same size as notebook hard drives. An
adapter is included for mounting in standard desktop PC 3.5" drive bays.
Performance Series Pro SSDs tap into the power of the Marvell
SATA 6 Gb/s controller for reliable performance across multiple platforms and PC
Fast reads and writes, regardless of file type
With an impressive ATTO Max performance of up to 515MB/s
Sequential Read and 440 MB/s Sequential Write, Performance Series Pro
solid-state drives offer incredibly fast boot and application load times that
will make you wonder why anybody still uses old-fashioned mechanical hard
drives. This isn't just limited to files that can be compressed and decompressed
on the fly ¡ª Performance Series Pro SSDs offer similar performance when reading
and writing compressed and non-compressible data. Since serious PC users work
with so much compressed data ¡ª audio, images, and video files are just a few
examples ¡ª it's a difference you'll notice every day.
It cleans up well
With full support for the TRIM command, you'll get great
performance under Microsoft® Windows® 7. Performance Series Pro goes one step
further, with built-in advanced background garbage collection. It automatically
uses idle time to optimize data storage, so that disk writes are consistently
fast. Since this technology is built-in, you'll get strong performance with Mac®
OS X® and Linux as well.
Multi-drive RAID configurations typically don't support TRIM. The
built-in advanced garbage collection solves this problem and makes Performance
Series Pro solid-state drives a great choice for RAID arrays.
Compatible with SATA 2 3Gb/s
Flexibility means the ability to last through several system
upgrades. If you haven't yet moved to SATA 3, adding a Performance Series Pro
SSD today lets you enjoy incredible storage performance now, and you'll tap into
its full performance with your next upgrade.
Corsair SSDs: Designed for Performance and Durability
Performance Series Pro SSDs feature support for the Windows 7
TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform
memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.
Performance Series Pro SSDs are available in unformatted capacities of
up to 240GB.
Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can handle shock,
vibration and temperature changes far in excess of traditional hard drives.
That's important for desktop PCs, and essential for notebooks.
Cool and Quiet, with Low Power Consumption
Traditional mechanical hard drives spin at thousands of
revolutions per minute. This takes power, and generates noise and heat. Since
SSDs have no moving parts, there's no noise or vibration, and the lower power
consumption helps keep things cool inside your PC.
The 2.5" form factor allows for installation in most notebook PCs
with no adapter required. If you're adding a Performance Series Pro SSD to your
desktop PC, use the included 3.5" adapter to mount it in any standard hard drive

The Performance Pro line-up offers great reliability and performance that will rival anything made by SandForce in most cases. Benchmarking programs really don't tell the story of typical day to day real world usage but they do tell us what a drive is capable of. And we saw this new drive hit th
This result is very good. As you can see the Performance Pro goes through CDM’s random data like a hot knife through butter. Take a look at the 4K results. Keep in mind, the 4K test is somewhat indicative of how well the drive can perform with what is typically found in daily use on an ope
Background Garbage Collection is stunning on this drive, as was to be expected. The Marvell 9174 controller does an incredible job of maintaining performance in almost all conditions. Perfect drive for running RAID or for use with Mac or Linux based Operating Systems.
Corsair is responding the enthusiast’s growing demand for a top tier drive that performs as well with incompressible data as it does with compressible data by offering the Performance Pro Series of drives. The Performance Pro is the first drive with 512MB DRAM cache in the form of two 256MB modules
Those of you who were burnt on the early SF drives with firmware issues and swore the controller off for good will find a silver lining in the Performance Pro; you will just have to pay a little more for making that call.
The Marvell controller in this drive is truly a force to be reckoned with. It is known to be extremely reliable as well as blazingly fast. Corsair has made a very smart move here by using 512MB of DDR3 cache along with premium Toshiba Toggle NAND to give us a top notch SSD.
