Default GT v GS

Can someone tell me what the main differences are between the GT and the GS versions of the Force Series SSD? Am I right to assume that the GS series is the newer version?

TIA

I can see some of the other models the GS of different capacity have far lower IOPS.

What is going to be the new Flagship/speed king SSD, the GS or so far not listed GTX?

Connoisseurs of SSDs know current NAND flash for SSDs comes in 3 varieties — fast, faster, and fastest. These can also be called asynchronous, synchronous, and toggle NAND respectively.

True, but the Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX uses the LAMD controller, so it can't be compared apples to apples (not to mention that it's not out yet): http://www.corsair.com/neutron

http://www.corsair.com/us/blog/neutron-gtx-ssd
http://www.corsair.com/en/blog/intro...eries-gs-ssds/

The Force Series GS has better ATTO writes, but the Neutron Series GTX has a slightly better score in PCMark (whether that's noticeable in daily use or even statistically relevant is another story since it's < 5%).

The Force Series GS transferred the 21.9 GB file in 1 min 41s.
The Neutron Series GTX transferred the 21.9 GB file in 1 min 10s.

I think I am finally going to get my first SSD and I am pretty sure its going to be the new GS. Hopefully my first SSD experience turns out to be a good one.

I picked out this one: Corsair Force Series GS 180 GB.

The only thing I am dreading is having to do a clean install then having to run all those updates lol. But at least I will get rid of a lot of programs that I no longer use. I intend on keeping my WD Black 750gig HD for vids, movies and music as a slave drive and put Windows and WoW ect on the SSD. :)
