Designed with modern SATA III motherboards in mind

Performance 3 Series solid-state drives combine the latest Marvell controller and supercharged synchronous NAND to eliminate bottlenecks and provide the serious 6Gbps SATA III bandwidth you need for cutting edge video and graphics.

Lightning fast boot and load times

Superfast SATA III performance lets you get on with your work or play. With up to 400Mbps read speeds your system will boot faster, applications will open more quickly and games will load up in a snap.

Performance that lasts for the long haul

Most solid-state drives are fast right out of the box, but many of those same drives slow down over time. Corsair Performance 3 Series SSDs offer more robust background garbage collection for consistent read and write speeds from day 1 to day 101.

Cool, quiet and durable solid state operation

Multi-drive RAID Solid-state drives are ideal for high performance systems since they run faster, cooler and quieter than traditional hard drives. And with no moving parts, they are more durable on-the-go too, making them perfect for use in notebooks and netbooks.

The Corsair Advantage

With more than 15 years of building enthusiast-grade memory and components, we’ve earned a reputation for quality, compatibility, and performance. Need help? We’re available by phone call, email, or web forum.

Corsair Performance 3 128GB SSD wins award at TweakTown

"I'm very excited about the results we achieved today with the Corsair Performance 3 RAID 0 array. Corsair has been fairly quiet about this product, so quiet that we even had to go out and purchase these drives just to review them. Corsair does mention on the Performance 3's product page that it uses advanced features, they are not yelling it from the rooftops like I would be....well....am about to. The Performance 3 has something we have yet to see from any other SSD in our labs, the ability to keep performance high no matter if you have access to TRIM or not. MAC users should take note, YOU DO NOT HAVE TRIM. RAID array enthusiasts should take note, YOU DO NOT HAVE TRIM. PS3 users, Windows Vista and XP users, old computers, new computers not running Windows 7, YOU DO NOT HAVE TRIM. If you do not have TRIM then you have an SSD that will start out fast, but over time the speed will fade. How fast that happens really depends on the amount of writes you use each day, but you are pretty much guaranteed to start losing speed on day one with any other SSD. The Corsair Performance 3 does not have this handicap."
