Word on the street (fo'real) is that SSD upstart Sandforce has brought forward sampling of its upcoming SATA 6Gbps SSD controller - dubbed Phoenix - from a previously mooted Q4 to Q3 - specifically September, according to our sources in Taipei at a popular SSD manufacturer.

Photofast has already leaked the specs of the SandForce Phoenix SSD controller, and it if can hit the claimed read/write of 520/520MB/s - almost maxing out the new interface in a single jump - it will annihilate the current speed record set by the only other SATA 6Gbps drive, Crucial's RealSSD C300.

Is more performance always good or will it just be another prohibitively expensive part? Let us know your thoughts, in the forums.
