Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Neutron GTX currently ships in three capacity sizes, 120GB, 240GB and the 480GB model we're testing today. Unlike the multiple Force Series products, Corsair doesn't change the claimed performance data on the spec sheet for the largest capacity size.
If the performance rating holds true then Neutron and Neutron GTX join OCZ's Vertex 4 in a new high capacity class of SSDs that allow capacity scaling without a performance reduction. One item did change on the spec sheet for the 480GB model; the DRAM buffer was doubled from 128MB (on the Neutron GTX 240GB model) to 256MB.
The claimed sequential read performance for the GTX 480GB is 555MB/s and the claimed sequential write speed is 511MB/s. Corsair only lists the maximum random 4K write speed (85K IOPS), so we'll have to wait till our test to find the maximum 4K read performance.
Corsair ships the Neutron GTX with the regular Corsair SSD bundle. You get a desktop adapter bracket, mounting screws and a small paper pamphlet. The Neutron GTX gets an upgrade in the warranty department, now five years and an increase over the Force Series products that still get a three year warranty.
Then there's the price. Newegg lists the Neutron GTX 480GB at $499 at the time of writing. This is roughly $70 more than the 480GB Force GT and $100 more than the Force GS, both very good products. Let's take a look and see if the Neutron GTX 480GB price is justified.
