About time we got a SEXY looking SF gen 2 drive! No "boring black" is a good thing.

AkG fancy's taste

Would be nice to see a budget SSD from corsair. They have some that are pretty cheap but I would like to see some drive like the Kingston V100 that are always around 80$ for 64GB. The point is that Corsair have a very nice CS.

I personally want one to be a nice bright neon pink. Would be hilarious.

Well, they took too long for the GT to come out so I ended up getting just a regular Force 3. I wonder what if any real difference there will be between the two?

Synchronous vs Asynchronous NAND.

Vertex 3 and Force GT (and others) use the faster ONFi 2.x spec DDR NAND (ie synchronous nand with 200MB/s interface).

Agility 3 and Force 3 use the older ONFi 1.0 spec SDR NAND (ie asynchronous NAND with 50MB/s interface).

In all likelihood the controller will cover this shortcoming to a great extent (8 channels x 50mb/s PLUS decompression of data for even higher seq reads). The Force 3 is a VERY good drive....just that the Corsair Force GT is their high end model. How much higher end...that is what testing is for, but I think its going to be KILLER good ;)

Actually...I would LOVE to see one in Mustang Yellow with black racing stripes (as it IS a muscle car of its niche). Pink just doesnt work for me.
