In order to get the most out of the Corsair Force 3 Series drives you'll need a motherboard with native SATA II capabilities.
ATTO Baseline Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34
ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.
Using ATT at its default 4 queue depth we achieved just over 550MB/s read and just under 500MB/s write. Corsair uses a queue depth of 10 and other manufacturers are starting to do the same when quoting their performance figures.
