Corsair neutron gtx and review

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just read a few reviews on the new Corsair Neutron Gtx and its new controller. In every review it pretty much beat my Samsung 830 in every bench mark. The only one it seemed to tie with my 830 was ATTO benchmark. Anyone know why benchmarks like Crystalmark, Pcmark and AS SSD show the corsair drive beating the heck out of the Samsung and ATTO tying it? And when I mean tying it, in the beginning of the test it did up till 4.0 then the corsair pretty much pulled away. I may sell my Samsung drive and get the new corsair one...

I'd wait and see how the Plextor M5 Pro stacks up.

Here is a screen shot of all my benchmarks. Now compare this to the corsair drive in the review and the results speak for themselves.....

I can't believe know one recommends the new corsair drive. In all the reviews I've seen its very to close to the fastest all around drive..

GO ahead and test it out and see how reliability is for us. We shall then start recommending it lol. I wouldn't get something brand new and untested over time myself.

I might do that :-) Although based on the numbers in bench marks the Corsair beats the Samsung at really everything from writes and reads to uncompressed and compressed data...

If you swap the 830 for the Neutron you may as well change out your 2600K for a 3770K. Sure you will never see the real world difference between either upgrade but who cares about that, everyone knows that synthetic/benchmark results are all that matter.

Also a Z77 board vs a Z68 Evga board. Sata drivers can and do make a difference.
