Corsair Neutron GTX 19nm 2013 Edition SSD (120GB, 240GB and 480GB) Review - Benchmarks - Anvil Storage Utilities

Corsair Neutron GTX 19nm 2013 Edition SSD (120GB, 240GB and 480GB) Review
Not long ago, we wrote about the Corsair Neutron base model with new 22nm SK Hynix flash. Today Chris walks us through the flagship GTX model that now features new 19nm Toggle flash from Toshiba.

Anvil Storage Utilities

 

Version and / or Patch Used: RC6

 

So what is Anvil Storage Utilities? First of all, it's a storage benchmark for SSDs and HDDs where you can check and monitor your performance. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests, you can run a full test or just the read or the write test or you can run a single test, i.e. 4K DQ16.

 

Anvil Storage Utilities is not officially available yet but we've been playing with the beta for several months now. The author, Anvil on several international forums has been updating the software steadily and is adding new features every couple of months.

 

The software is used several different ways and to show different aspects for each drive. We've chosen to use this software to show the performance of a drive with two different data sets. The first is with compressible data and the second data set is incompressible data. Several users have requested this data in our SSD reviews.

 

0-Fill Compressible Data

Neutron GTX works compressible and incompressible data at the same rate.

 

 

Read IOPS through Queue Depth Scale

The Corsair Neutron GTX is a year old now. When released, the LAMD controller was a top performer, but since then, other controllers and even existing controllers have updated their firmware to get higher IOPS performance at low queue depths.

 

 

Scaling Write IOPS through Queue Scale

One area where the Neutron GTX does really well is low queue depth writes.
