SSD for a gaming laptop?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey; I'm about to get a Sager to replace my aging desktop (Damn 570-580m GTX, I'm waiting on them since forever!) and NCIX.com is having a nice little sale right now on Vertex 2 extended drives and the Corsair Performance 3 series.

Corsair Performance 3:

or the Vertex 2 extended:

I'll be using it as my OS drive and it will run games, 3DS Max and Adobe softwares. The laptop will support Sata3.

Looking forward to your opinions

A lot of complaints about those vertex. Apparently they used 32nm and 25nm manufacturing and advertise 25nm speeds for the slower overstocked 32nm. Don't quote me on that or the numbers.

From my experience the Intels and Crucials are amazing. I have an Itel x25m 120GB myself and can vouch for its performance in a gaming laptop. It's amazing.

The 180GB version specifies it has a SF1200 controller and 50000 IOPS, are those the 25nm versions?

How long have you been running it? Any issues?

I thought it was the other way around? The 25nm doesn't use all the channels of the controller as the chips are of higher capacity so the speed ends up being slower

I really have no idea. I thought the deal was pretty good but someone mentioned something about two different manufacturing processes but them only advertising the faster one.
I have a regular vertex here too, not as fast as my Intel SSD but awesome all the same.

What about the Corsair Performance 3? The only problem is that I've heard much less about the Marvell controller than Sandforce. But its specs seem much better than the Vertex 2 Ext.
