This one was unexpected, Corsair just introduced a brand new SSD line based on a new controller by Link a Media Devices (LAMD). The Neutron drives will be available in two versions: regular and GTX, with the difference being ONFi vs. Toggle NAND. The basic performance specs look pretty good, at 90K IOPS 4K reads/writes and over 500MB/s sequential reads/writes. There's obviously quite a bit to building a good SSD so we'll reserve final judgement until we get drives in house. It's good to see Corsair being very aggressive and pursuing a relationship with a new controller vendor. The LAMD relationship is exclusive to Corsair for the near future. 

Corsair presented ATTO results for two Neutrons in RAID-0 as well as a standalone Neutron GTX (above). The drives are all 7mm 2.5" models, with the first shipments targeted at July.

    Hi everyone,

    This is my first post here... so don't hurt me please!

    I will receive 2x Neutron GTX 240gb sometime next week. AFAIK Corsair will release first production batch mid next week so the Neutron line prolly hits the specialty toy shops in about 2 weeks. This "release" is not confirmed but this is from my connection from an insider.

    I am a high-tech computer geek work and live in Silicon Valley; I read technical reviews on new release products, and constantly bugging my connections to buy at hook-up rate, but I don't do review postings...

    Just to share about the possible releasing date...

    geekfool,

    I am not.

    I said "Aug-2?-2012" but not "soon". I don't use "soon" to describe the date because that will only get people frustrated.

    Plus, their new "Raptor Gaming line looks like junks from China town"... I bashed again so just to make sure don't tag their logo on my back please.

    I love Corsair products but I could not agree with this Raptor stuffs. It looks cheap & crappy! I know the reason for the SSD-Neutron's delay and I think I have the clue why they bought Raptor company, but that is not our scope here.

    Again, I do not work for Corsair. I am just a lucky guy can afford to play electronic hardware puzzles when I have all the hook-ups from Asus, Intel, Corsair, Nvidia, Microsoft, and Dell.

    Just hope this Link a Media thing sparks some!
