Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD Review

AIDA64 and Anvil Sequential

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD

AIDA64

We're off to a good start with the AIDA64 read test suite. The Neutron GTX gives us the fastest speeds we've yet seen from a single drive. 580 MB/s in the random test is outstanding.

 

Anvil Sequential

Anvil provides us with the bulk of our test results, thanks to its easy to use interface and plethora of test options. The Sequential IOPS for both read and write are around the same as every other drive we've seen, although just shy of the very fastest drives.

I recently read another review which tested the GTX and the vanilla Neutron side by side, and they were very close in most benchmarks. Close enough so that the cheaper version seems like it might be the better value (~$45 in the difference for 240GB here in Canada).

Any thoughts, Tom?

(Also, I can't thank you enough for all the review vids - they've been extremely helpful while I've been gathering parts for my first PC build.)Quote

Seems to be a awesome drive.
But I've a doubt in my mind over the reliability of new LM87800 controller.Quote

I have been seeing a lot of poor reviews to the exact complication you were describing about the drive being laggy; Did you ever find out what was the issue? I am looking to buy ASUS Maximus V EXTREME LGA 1155 Intel Z77 and was curious if this drive would not work properly;
