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: 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
Conclusion: The Corsair Neutron GTX is a top-tier SSD that barely edges out the M5 Pro as the best SSD we’ve yet tested. With good read speeds and incredible write speeds, it definitely offers a great purchase option albeit at a top tier price.
Pros: Brilliant write speed performance, Good read performance in most situations, Overall, the best SSD we’ve tested
Cons: Some poor read speed results, Not inexpensive
