SandForce is a line of SSD (solid state disk) processors and controllers sold by the company of the same name to partners that build and sell complete SSDs. The California-based SandForce’s SSD processors feature the company’s proprietary DuraClass technology, a collection of NAND flash management features that includes DuraWrite (which reduces write amplification), RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements), wear-leveling algorithms, flash media error correction control (ECC) and AES encryption.
SandForce controllers starting with the SF-2000 series offer SATA 3.0 (SATA 6 Gb/s) support as well as 500+ MB/s sequential read and write speeds and 20,000 (consumer-grade) or 60,000 (enterprise-grade) IOPS random read and write speeds.
Some of the major companies that sell SSDs using SandForce controllers include Corsair, OCZ, Patriot Memory and Unigen.
