Corsair has had a busy morning. They've both released the Force Series 3 SSD with a migration tool, as well as registered for an IPO (initial public offering). The Force Series 3 is pretty impressive, with 550/520 MB/s sequential read/write and a 4k random write of 85k IOPS. The migration tool is also quite handy. It's a USB-to-SATA (with power) connector, and handy software that clones your hard drive. Since SSDs are generally smaller than regular HDDs, there a way to not include some data when you're cloning your drive, such as your movies folder or music folder, so all of your important files will fit. To read more about that, check out their migration guide.

The IPO registration form was sent into the US Securities Exchange Commission. It looks like Corsair is hoping to raise $86,250,000 through the IPO, with a common stock par value of $0.0001 per share. Those are just estimates for the registration fee, though, and are likely to change. The stock symbol for Corsair Components, Inc., will be "CRSR" on the Nasdaq Global Market.
