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.

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

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

  3. the prices are 399.99 and less for some good ones

  4. Today you can get a Crucial M4 right here at the forum store for 349.00 ,512gb.

  5. Superb review and great shoot on picture 🙂

  6. Great review. Thanks so much! Will look to budget one of these into my next build.

  7. Only one thing>they are not sata 6,else perfect 🙂

  8. all tests are to simple for me. You did not write if neutron caches data in DRAM, what happen if power ist lost. how disk will work in real world not just brand new out of the box?
    look to storagereview or anandtech tests. they try to look deeper into the subject.
    not all users are buing ssd to test how fast it can write one big file to laptop. many people uses SSD as smart cache for HHDs. are neutrons good for that?
