SanDisk has a long history in the OEM market with many different types of flash devices; from USB flash sticks to memory cards and embedded memory modules in many of today's hottest products. SanDisk is now expanding their presence into the consumer realm with the SanDisk Extreme SSD. SanDisk only has one previous consumer oriented SSD line to its credit, the Ultra series.
This series of SSDs utilized an SF-1200 processor and a SATA 3Gb/s connection. The new SanDisk Extreme Series sports a much more powerful controller from SandForce, the SF-2181. This is the venerable processor that is utilized in a wide range of SSDs from many different manufacturers and is currently the flagship client controller offering from SandForce.
