Intro

SSDs are finally really entering the mainstream computing, the entry level models have finally reached high enough capacity and low enough price to be a realistic upgrade for many users. Anyway while some models are aimed at the entry level and budget-minded buyers, there's also the other end of the scale - the best performance possible. This time we take a look at Corsair's new flagship SSD, the Force GT.

 

Package & Specifications

 

Corsair Force GT SSD - When HDD fast is not fast enough!
 

  Specifications:
  • Interface: SATA 6Gb/s
  • Max Sequential Read/Write (using ATTO Disk Benchmark): 555 MB/s sequential read — 515 MB/s sequential write
  • Max Random 4k Write (using IOMeter 08): 85k IOPS (4k aligned)
  • SSD Unformatted Capacity: Depending on the model (60, 90, 120, 180, 240 GB)

Just like most SSDs, also the Force GT is a 2,5" sized drive, and with no need for padding also the retail box is very compact. There's not much to see on the box, just a picture of the drive, the capacity and specified read- and write speeds. And with both read and write being over half a gigabyte per second, those are some very impressive numbers and in fact the drive comes very close to the limitations of S-ATA 3.

 

Bundle

The bundle includes nothing but the 2,5" - 3,5" mounting adapter and the required screws. The drive sits at the left edge of the adapter, meaning that it's compatible with S-ATA back planes and hot-swap drive bays.
