Corsair is getting ready to launch their next line of solid state drives called the Neutron XT. This new line of high-performance SSDs is set to a release as early as January 2015 and sure look like being worth a closer look..
The new line is said to enter the top consumer spectrum with solid performance backed by the new Phison PS3110 quad-core controller and Toshiba A19 MLC NAND flash that runs on an 8-channel interface. Features include native 256-bit AES encryption with TCG Opal 2.0 compliance, SmartFlush to push inbound data to the flash and minimize the chance of data-loss during a power failure, as well as an updated SSD Toolbox software.
The Neutron XT will initially be available in three capacities: 240, 480 and 960GB. It’s however not unlikely that more options might be introduced at a later point. The performance figures look very impressive with sequential speeds of up to 564MB/s reading and 547MB/s while writing. Random IOPS top out at 100K on reads and 89.9K on writes.
There is no word on pricing yet, but the drives come backed by a 3 year warranty and are standard 2.5-inch 7mm form factor.
