Corsair Gives Marvell Another Try With Performance Pro SSD
Corsair is no stranger to Marvell based SSDs. Prior to its current flagship Force 3 and Force GT (SF-2281 based) SSDs, Corsair released the Performance 3 Series using Marvell controllers. The attraction to Marvell is as follows: you get a much more affordable controller than SandForce's SF-2281 and you get the ability to roll your own custom firmware. The former is easy to benefit from, while the latter requires that you invest heavily in firmware development.
Today Corsair announced its second generation Marvell based SSD line: the Performance Pro. The drives boast sequential reads/writes of up to 515MB/s and 440MB/s, respectively. The drives come with a three year warranty and are available in 128GB and 256GB.
The big question is obviously what firmware development looks like for the Performance Pro and whether or not we'll see firmware updates going forward.
