Performance Series™ P64 Solid-State Hard Drive

Based on the second-generation Samsung controller with 128MB of cache memory and using Samsung flash memory, the Performance Series™ offers excellent, stutter-free performance, and the best stability and system compatibility available. Performance Series™ SSDs are an ideal choice for notebooks, netbooks, and desktop PCs alike.

Replacing your hard disk drive with a Corsair Extreme Series SSD will revolutionize your computing experience.

Games load more quickly, your computer starts faster, and multiple applications run more smoothly, all while running cool and silent.

Corsair’s Extreme Series drives are among the fastest available today. The combination of the Indilinx Barefoot controller, Samsung flash memory, and a generous onboard cache, results in extreme performance with up to 240MB/s sequential read and 170MB/s sequential write speeds. Available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB configurations, the Extreme Series drives are for RAID 0 configurations on your desktop, delivering blistering speed and eliminating the long-standing performance bottleneck of traditional mechanical hard disks.

PureOC finds that the Performance Series P64 SSD are a killer solution

Running a pair of the P64's in RAID 0 certainly made things interesting, blowing away the competition in Read and Write results, and sequential tests in particular. Hitting sustained speeds of 385MB/s read and 285 MB/s write is eye-wateringly fast.

Tweak Town likes the performance of the P64 in RAID

Our tests show that SSDs scale very well in RAID 0, not exactly double the performance but pretty darn close, depending on the test you are running. Keeping that level of performance is the key and the hardware Self-Healing feature that is only found in the current likes of Samsung / Corsair drives. This makes a very strong case for shifting my bias to the Corsair Performance Series drives for use in high performance desktop RAID arrays.
