Corsair Neutron Series GTX (480GB)
14 November 2012
Conclusion: Shop around and you'll find that plenty of high-capacity SSDs are readily available at under £300. The 480GB SanDisk Extreme (£275) and the 512GB Crucial M4 (£285) are perfect examples; they offer excellent performance and high-capacity at a competitive price.
Summary: The Corsair Neutron GTX 480GB and its LAMD Amber controller represent the next generation of high capacity SSDs. Typically large SSDs suffer performance degradation compared to smaller counterparts, and today we test the Neutron GTX with its Toshiba Toggle NAND to see if this holds true with...
Summary: We got off track a bit with the new charts, but they give us a new look at metrics we've ignored for far too long. Once we have more data collected and organized by capacity size we can fill the charts in with relevant comparisons. In total we have ten new tests, but only rolled out four today.
Summary: Pairing the Link_A_Media Devices LM87800 controller with Toshiba toggle NAND has proven to be a formidable combination that puts the Corsair’s flagship Neutron GTX SSD on the very short list of drives we’d want in our system.
Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB Solid State Drive Review

Conclusion: When we looked at the Neutron SSD not too long ago, on the whole I was very impressed with the capability of the new LAMD controller and its potential to take on the known and well trusted SandForce SF-2281 IC.
Review: Corsair's Neutron and Neutron GTX solid-state drives
11 October 2012
Summary: Corsair wouldn't tell us when its exclusive access to LAMD's LM87800 controller runs out, so it's hard to say how long the Neutrons will remain unique. One thing is certain, though: these drives are good enough to keep up with the fastest 2.5" SSDs around.
Summary: Corsair's new Neutron GTX performs quite well in our testing. We see real-life performance that's almost on par with SandForce drives, and a few percent behind the Corsair Performance Pro, which is the fastest drive we ever tested.
Pros: Amazing sequential performance, 7 mm thick, Ultrabook ready, SATA 6 Gbps support, Supports TRIM, 5-year warranty
Cons: Real-life performance lower than expected, Relatively high price, Needs a SATA 6 Gbps controller to perform best
Summary: Corsair and LAMD aim to bring the heat with the enthusiast class Neutron GTX SSD. The new LAMD controller paired with Toshiba Toggle NAND looks to dominate the upper echelon of the performance SSD market. Today we take a look to see how it fares in our steady state testing.
Conclusion: It seems every man and his dog is producing high-speed consumer SSDs. But putting together a drive that's genuinely new takes some doing, and that's exactly what Corsair has achieved with the Neutron Series and Neutron Series GTX.
