Corsair Neutron and Neutron GTX SSD Review – New Link A Media Controller Pulls No Punches

AS SSD BENCHMARK VER 1.6 (CONT’D)

The same can be said for the incredibly high IOPS results which are consistent for both read and write testing; we haven’t had a result as high as this to date from a typical form factor SSD.

Copy Bench results are great although the aren’t the best we have seen.  Higher recorded Copy-Benchmark results were seen on the Corsair GS recently reviewed.

ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL (BETA)

You may not see this for long (and its definitely not common) but you get a freebee simply for reading!  Over the last little while, we have been assisting with beta testing new benchmark software called Anvil Storage Utilities which is an absolutely amazing SSD benchmarking utility.  Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and utilize in our benchmark testing.

NEUTRON GTX

NEUTRON

Both Neutrons exhibit great Anvil results and, if you look closely, you will see slight differences in transfer speeds, IOPS results and disk access times.

Glad to see another SSD controller apart from Marvell that doesn’t flop under incompressable data like Sandforce does.

My next SSD will likely be a 512GB. As soon as the prices come down to $400.
