Corsair has a new custom PCB for better signal integrity, but is it enough to make this SandForce drive the one you should buy today?

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: AVADirect, GIGABYTE, Cooler Master, LSI, Corsair. and Noctua.

 

You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.

 

In order to get the most performance out of your Force GT, or for that matter any other SATA III SSD, you need a motherboard with native SATA III built into the chipset. At this time your best performance will come from P67 and Z68 motherboards. I'm currently using a GIGABYTE P67 and am very impressed with its performance.

 

 

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 ATTO we found that Corsair's performance claims of 555MB/s read and 525MB/s write speeds were spot on.
