The Corsair F80A is one of the latest SSDs from Corsair – the ‘A’ at the end signifies that it uses the latest 25nm NAND flash memory modules. Performance compared to the other drives in the Force series is however unchanged and very high. It’s based on the SandForce SF-1200 controller (SSD processor) that pushes the limits of what the SATA 2 inteface is capable of. With a SandForce-based drive, you get the best possible performance and reliability over the SATA 2 interface.
As opposed to other drives, lower capacity does not affect performance–the SSD performs equally well even at smaller capacities, which is partly due to the fact that SandForce drives do not require DRAM cache to provide optimal performance. They “just work”. Like other drives in the series, TRIM support and and Garbage Collection is included, both features that keeps your drive performing well in the long run.
