Testing

Test Rig

  • CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k @ 3.8 GHz
  • Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V Pro
  • RAM: 16 GB Geil Evo Veloce @ 2133 MHz
  • GPU: 2 x AMD Radeon HD 6950 2 GB in Crossfire
  • Storage: Crucial M4 128 GB, Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB

Methodology

As always, with SSDs there are plenty of fun benchmarks to run that will measure the drive’s read and write performance. I’ll be comparing the results of these benchmarks to those I’ve run on the Plextor M3 Pro, M5 Pro and the Crucial M4.

Synthetic Benchmarks:

  • CrystalDiskMark
  • AS SSD
  • ATTO Disk Benchmark
  • SiSoft Sandra Physical Disks Benchmark
  • HD Tune Pro

Real World Benchmarks:

  • Windows 8 Install Time
  • Bootracer Windows 8 Boot Time

Crystal Disk Benchmark

Crystal Disk Benchmark is a good place to start, with tests run five times looking at read and write speeds across a range of sizes and queue depths. In read and write performance, we see impressive beginning results for the Corsair Neutron GTX. We’ve got slightly worse read speeds in the sequential test, but good results almost everywhere else. The 512K and Sequential write tests are impressive, although we do tend to see better write performance on higher capacity drives – and this one is double the speed of all the other SSDs we’ve tested.

It’s easy to see why AS SSD was chosen to promote the Corsair Neutron GTX, with top scores across the board in access times, 4K read performance at both queue depths and a high 506 MB/s sequential read. Write performance is even better, with significant speed advantages in the sequential and 4K 64 Third benchmarks.
