Corsair announced the Neutron series of SSD at Computex in June, and the drives are finally available for purchase. The fourth generation of Corsair SSD has already received much critical acclaim according to Senior VP and General Manager of PC Components at Corsair Thi La, "Top industry journalists have already given our Neutron SSDs rave reviews for delivery outstanding all-around performance." The Neutron and Neutron GTX are powered by the LM87800 controller from Link_A_Media Devices, a departure from the SandForce line of controllers that have been popular among SSD manufacturers. The Neutron GTX is capable of read and write speeds up to 555MB/s and 500MB/s, respectively, while the Neutron can reach 555MB/s and 370MB/s for the same operations. Both models are available now in capacities of 120GB and 240GB, with a 480GB model expected sometime this month. The 120GB Neutron will cost $119.99 while the 240GB will be $209.99, and the Neutron GTX features prices of $139.99 and $249.99.
