I can't complain about the Paladin's middle-of-the-road performance. It features the popular Corsair Neutron GTX SSD, meaning it will perform about the same as the other systems that make use of the Neutron GTX.

The same occurs with write speeds. Due to the use of the same SSD as the large portion of our desktops, it falls towards the upper-middle of the pack. It produces a respectable 269.7MB/s sequential write speed.
