Corsair Neutron Series GTX 480GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - BootRacer

Corsair's lock on Link_A_Media Device's controller is holding. We've seen the 240GB capacity sizes of the Neutron and Neutron GTX, and now we get our turn with the massive 480GB drive.

Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation loaded with an operating system and several program files. The data on the drive at the time of the test is 45GB. The second test, 50GB Free, was run with the drives filled with block data until only 50GB of free capacity remained.

Using BootRacer we found a few interesting things. The first thing we found is that the amount of data on the drive has very little to do with an SSDs boot performance. We could fill drives up to 90% capacity and see very little variation, at least in most cases. What slows an SSD or even an HDD down is dll and other files that get loaded from installed programs.


The boot test with BootRacer is still a work in progress.
