[Review] Corsair Performance Series Pro 128GB 6Gbps SSD
1 March 2012
Conclusion: Building a Solid State drive on a controller other than SandForce in this day and age might not seem like a sound financial move, even Intel has jumped on the bandwagon. Corsair has SandForce driven Solid State Drives on the market already for much less than the cost of this drive. So why use one of the first SATA 6Gbps controllers on the market, one that historically is an under performer? Especially when it costs more to produce.
Summary: I have to admit I don't feel like I've unlocked all of the mysteries of the new Performance Pro drives just yet. On Corsair's webpage they talk about the advanced garbage collection algorithms built into the programming, but we have yet to benefit from these. At some point we'll start working on a RAID article which is where front end garbage collection helps the most since most operating systems use TRIM these days.
