Corsair launching new 'Extreme' solid state drives

Memory manufacturer releases new high performance storage range

Memory maker Corsair has announced additions to its range of solid-state hard drives. The new 'Extreme Series' is a collection of three high performance drives which are perfect as primary drives in notebooks and desktop systems and come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

The drives have been designed with speed in mind and can offer read speeds of up to 240MB per second with write speeds reaching up to 170MB per second, perfect for the handling of large files. The speed increase is significantly faster than previous SSD drives from Corsair and competitors Western Digital.

These new drives have more than just speed on there side, as they can also be upgraded. End-users can upgrade the drives' firmware via the Corsair website in order to add more functionality and ensure optimal performance from the device over time.

Corsair is yet to reveal pricing for the drives, but the usual SSD premium is expected.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
