[Corsair/OCC] Some Q&A on SSDs with 25nm ICs

How is it different from earlier technologies?

Flash ICs based on 25nm transistors are fairly unique in that the transistors have now become so small that it is starting to become difficult to store a charge on them. Engineers compensate for this by creating very sophisticated error correcting circuits...

By the end of February, Corsair will have two Force Series 25nm SSDs available for purchase. The F115-A will have a capacity of 115GB and be priced at an MSRP of $215. The F80-A will be an 80GB SSD and have an MSRP of $169. For comparison's sake, the current Force Series F120 has an MSRP of $289 while the F80 has an MSRP of $199. So there is a price reduction which hopefully will drop even further with more 25nm drives on the market.

That's a good thing to see, a company that informs it's customers of significant product modifications. With the sneaky business practices OCZ have condonned, I've recently suggested a mass boycott of their product at work.

This is a vote of confidence for Corsair, may they prevail!

Picked up an F120 for my girlfriend a couple of months back. I would have to say one of the single best purchases I ever made.

I bought a Mushkin Callisto over the slightly cheaper Vertex 2 just because OCZ refused to acknowledge this issue. Guess what, OCZ, you just lost a customer.

Looks like the performance drop is only 5MB/s. Far less than OCZ's performance drop. Even though OCZ are scumbags I'd probably wait for Vertex 3/C600 to officially release before buying an SSD right now.
Although the Vertex 3 pre-production models shipped to review sites are still using 32nm so performance will be slightly worse at release. They're just trying to take some of the heat off of them with the Vertex 2 fiasco.

According to Anand's tests, 25nm shouldn't see as much of a performance degradation as Vertex2 did. I believe it has to do with proper population of the NAND channels and other details that I don't know too well. An increase in available space should also have a positive effect on the drive longevity due to a larger pool of LBAs to adress and level wear on the FLASH.
