What's a company like Corsair to do to follow up its Extreme Series X32, X64 and X128 SSDs
? A new Extreme Series X256 model for starters. Joining the company's equally spacious P256
SSD drives, this one offers some of the fastest read speeds yet with promised rates up to 240MB/s, along with write speeds up 170MB/s, 64MB of cache memory (or half that of the P256), and the one-two punch of Indilinx's Barefoot controller and Samsung's MLC NAND flash memory at the heart of the drive. Still no official word from Corsair on a price, but it looks to already be selling for just under $700.
