Unexpected Link_A_Media Devices controller


Corsair has announced a new addition to its SSD lineup, the Neutron Series SSDs.

It features a rather unexpected Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD) controller that, according to Corsair, offers super high random read/write performance. The new Neutron Series SSD lineup will feature standard Neutron SSDs available in 120 and 240GB capacities as well as the Neutron GTX SSDs with higher write speeds.

The entire new Neutron Series is based on LAMD's L87800 SATA 6Gbps controller and feature on-the-fly error correction and advanced NAND management technologies that will improve endurance and provide enhanced reliability and durability. The Neutron GTX SSDs will also feature adaptive DSP technology that should prevent performance degradation.

The standard Neutron SSD series will, as noted, be available in 120 and 240GB capacities and offer sequential read and write speeds of up to 555MB/s and 370MB/s. The random read and write, something that Corsair is bragging about with its Neutron Series, is set at quite an impressive 90k IOPS read and 85k IOPS write. The Neutron GTX Series SSDs will be available in 120, 240 and 480GB capacities and offer quite higher sequential speeds of up to 555MB/s for read and 500MB/s for write. The random read and write for these SSDs is set at 90k.

The new Nutron SSD lineup will be packed in a standard 7mm 2.5-inch form factor and be backed by a five-year warranty. The entire lineup is scheduled for July and pricing will be announced upon a product release.
