The Corsair Performance 3 can sure bring the sustained read performance across the drive. Here we see the P3 outrunning everything on out chart, even the 256GB Crucial RealSSD C300.

The write performance is where we expected to see the P3 faultier, but the 128GB drive can still deliver very good write performance. There was a dip on the graph in all five of our runs, right at the beginning, but this drop in performance was only for a split second.
