G.Skill Phoenix Blade 480GB PCIe SSD Review
Do we need to write anything here? We do? But they saw the graphs, it's obvious what the conclusion is. What? Some people just skip to this page. More fool them. Okay here goes...
The G.Skill Phoenix Blade PCIe SSD is the fastest storage solution around, by such a whopping margin that we're struggling to think of a simile. If this is Chess, other fast SATA based SSDs are Snap. This is Bayern Munich to your Sunday League team. It's the Guardians of the Galaxy in an Adam Sandler world. It's so fast it makes our balls ache with desire. We covet it more than you might covet your neighbours ox.
If all that seems like hyperbole, then you clearly are one of the people who skipped to the conclusion. 1500MB/s both read and write, on a regular basis, in every test.
We're not entirely sure what more needs to be said. This is hilariously fast. Yes, it's perhaps a tiny bit expensive if you compare it to the speed and capacity you'd get from, for example, four Corsair LX 512GB drives. Although they will take up four SATA slots, four power cables and require setting up a RAID 0. Which is easy these days but still a pain if you change motherboards. This is one thing, plug and go. Or in this case, plug and disappear into the distance faster than the old owner of this site ran off with his ill-gotten gains.
It's everything you wanted and many things you didn't realise you desired. Sell your grandmother and get one, because if you don't hurry up we're going to come round and sell her ourselves. The standard against which all other storage solutions will be judged, the G.Skill Phoenix Blade 480GB PCIe SSD romps home with our Performance Award.
Can we have a boxful in 1TB sizes please, G.Skill? Thanks.
