Force Series GS Solid-State Drives: Speed for the real world.
Force Series GS solid-state drives are powered by a SandForce SF-2200 SSD Processor and fast Toggle NAND memory for both fast sequential read/write speeds and strong random write speed for impressive real-world performance.
Fast in a straight line. Fast in the curves, too.
Benchmarks are great, but your PC doesn’t run on benchmarks. Force Series GS has the scores, and the real-world performance to back it up.
Some SSDs are strong performers with sequential read and write speeds, but bog down with random writes. Force Series GS is better. It’s great at both.
Works even better with the latest systems.
Force Series GS supports SATA 3 6Gb/s, so you’ll get superior performance from newer notebook and desktop PCs that use the newest standard. It’s also fully backward compatible with SATA 2.
Superior Sequential Read and Write Speeds
The first key to real performance is sequential read and write speeds. You’ll feel the speed when you’re loading and saving large files. Solid-state drives store files in contiguous blocks of memory, so you’ll get nearly instantaneous response when you click that “Load” or “Save” button.
Excellent Random Write Performance
Fast random write speeds are also critical to performance you’ll notice on a daily basis. If you’re running multiple applications at once, odds are that they’re writing small bits of data to the drive with regularity. The fast Toggle NAND memory gives Force Series GS the agility to handle them all without slowing down.
Maintains its Performance Over Time
Force Series GS solid-state drives support the Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.
Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can handle shock, vibration and temperature changes far in excess of traditional hard drives. That's important for desktop PCs, and essential for notebooks.
Cool and Quiet, with Low Power Consumption
Traditional mechanical hard drives spin at thousands of revolutions per minute. This takes power, and generates noise and heat. Since SSDs have no moving parts, there's no noise or vibration, and the lower power consumption helps keep things cool inside your PC. It can also save battery life on notebooks.
