As part of the transition to SSDs based on 25nm NAND, Corsair has announced the Force Series 115GB and 80GB SSDs. The Corsair F115-A and F80-A 25nm drives will be available by the end of February. Corsair has taken the welcome tact of being transparent about the change in capacity and performance - and they've also dropped the price. The current generation F120 carries an MSRP of $249 for instance; the new F115-A will retail for $215. The F80-A will see a suggested retail of $169.

I haven't understood why buy a F115 instead of a F120.
F115 is smaller, slower, with a shorter lifetime and it cost quite the same.

Why buy a 25nm like this now?

Thanks Brian.

Well it costs slightly less, and 25nm will be a reality soon enough for most SSD manufacturers. The big thing here is you know exactly what you are buying, capacity, type of flash, and even speed. At least in this situation it won't be purchasing a F120 and getting 25nm flash without knowing it. Hopefully once these things hit places like NewEgg and Amazon they will get some nicer "street" prices.

While I can't say for certain right now, if the F80A and F115 are both using a full 16 NAND ICs, speed won't be anywhere near as drastically changed as it was in our Vertex 2 60GB review.
