Corsair has just introduced their Neutron XT Line of solid state drives. These drives make use of a Phison PS3110 quad-core controller and modern 19 nm Toshiba A19 MLC NAND flash chips over an 8-channel interface. The drive is 7 mm think in the 2.5-inch form factor and has a SATA 6GB/s interface.
The Phison PS3110 controller has features like SmartFlush which pushes inbound data to the flash, minimizing the chance of data-loss in the event of a power failure. It also offers 256-bit AES encryption with TCG Opal 2.0 compliance.
The Neutron XT will be available in 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB capacities. The 240 GB variant will have sequential read and write speeds of 564 MB/s and 547 MB/s respectively. The 480 GB and 960 GB variants on the other hand will have 562 MB/s reads with up to 542 MB/s writes on the 480 GB and 532 MB/s writes on the 960 GB. All three drives have a write endurance of 124 TB. Corsair has also updated their SSD Toolbox software with a refreshed interface.
Corsair did not release pricing.
