Corsair’s Force Series GT uses the new SandForce SF-2280 controller with native support for SATA 6Gb/s, combined with ONFI synchronous flash memory. Force Series GT SSDs deliver outstanding read/write performance and significantly faster system response, boot times, and application load times than SATA 2 solid-state drives, with out-of-box performance of up to 85K Random Write IOPS, read speeds of up to 555MB/s. The Force Series GT is particularly adept at moving compressed data. You'll appreciate this real-world benefit if you work with music, movie and graphics files.


"Memory is the key difference between the Force GT and Force Series 3 as the Series 3 utilizes Micron 25nm asynchronous NAND flash whereas the GT uses synchronous NAND flash memory. Each memory chip is 8GB in capacity for a total of 128GB, however one module is dedicated to SandForce over provisioning and firmware needs which reduces capacity to 120GB. Formatting of the GT then results in 112GB storage capacity available to the user. Asynchronous NAND flash memory is relatively new to the world of consumer SSDs and we first saw it with the OCZ Agility and now recognize its appearance in the Force Series 3. Asynchronous memory is much cheaper than the synchronous flash utilized in the Force GT and async NAND now provides us with a more cost effective consumer solution in SSD migration."

The downfall, of course, is performance where async memory does not handle incompressible data very well at all.

The Corsair Force GT performs much better than the Force Series 3 although both are SATA 3;
The Corsair Force Series 3 has a significantly lower price point than the Force GT at the same capacity.

Just my 2 cents.

I still have the imfamous BSOD/hibernation issue with my Corsair F120. It's been known and complained about on Corsair's forum for almost a year, but no concrete fix has ever been issued by Corsair. No new firmware has ever been released. I like all other Corsair products, but for SSD, I suggest you go with a company with a more reliable track record or a company that has enough resources to release frequent firmware updates. Again, just my 2 cents. I just replaced the F120 with a Vertex 3 IOPS and the BSOD issue disappeared.

I've heard equal number of complaints from the OCZ Vertex 3 drives as well as all drives using the sandforce 2200 controller.. I definitely think the Force GT is far superior than the F120 though.

u guys just dont know how to use ssd's i've deployed dozens of ssds over the course of a year (40+) and not a single one has failed

:facepalm2:

Right.

Because hardware manufacturers never do anything wrong... and new technology always works perfectly out of the box... :bonk:

Just the first few examples I've pulled off the web.. go ahead and verify for yourself.

It is a consumer SSD. If it doesn't work after I connected the cables, the company has failed to made a consumer product.

i've haven't had the pleasure of working on any corsair ssd's. but i never said i set everyone up right out of the box...the adata's were a pain in the ass to update firmware to, the ocz's not so much, a lot of the ones we got from amazon already came with the latest stable firmwares...

Why do you think it's much better besides the little difference in speed? Don't they both use the same controller?
