I would seriously doubt that they have any 3xnm nand left for an entire run of drives. 34 is EOL and once mfgers run out...they are most likely O-U-T. ;)
TBH, 25nm vs 3xnm NAND is a non issue for sf2000s drives.

I was worried that the 25nm might have some potential drawbacks in terms of lifespan compared to the 34nm version. If it is really not an issue then I might just get a 120GB version.

Oh it DOES have a potential drawback wrt to lifespan...its just a non issue for most users and the new gen controllers. ;)

All the parts are the same (nand, controller) its just the firmware that is different. But, on paper the Force 3 has the edge (85>75>60). Real World...no one knows...yet. ;)
Interesting times indeed!

For my office machine, I used Corsair Force SSDs instead of OCZ Vertex. They have been problem-free.

I want to upgrade my home machine from 3 OCZ Vertex 2 drives to something better. If these Corsair Force drives at least match the OCZ performance and price, I'd probably go with them instead.

Well here is a little ATTO benchmark of the new Corsair Force 3 drives. Be warned it is from Corsair themselves but at least they explain how they got the results.
