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

ATTO is another test program for giving raw write- and read speeds at various block sizes. Looking from small to up, the F3 is actually doing very well at 1-4 kB sub tests, but after this both SSDs are significantly faster. The F120 tops at 280 MB/s, and the Force GT goes up to 500 MB/s again - just as promised on the box.

 

AS SSD

Unlike most of the other benchmarks here, AS SSD actually gives a score rather than the read/write speeds themselves. In total score the Force GT wins the F120 by 102 points.

The AS SSD also measures the access time for both read and write, and here it's a very close call between these two drives. In fact it's such a close call that the difference of 1 or 9 micro seconds isn't really going to show anywhere.



Conclusion


PROS 
  • Fast
  • Comes with a 3,5" bracket
  • Fast!

    CONS 
  • -
  • Award
    Editor's Choice Award!


    The Corsair Force GT is without a doubt one of the fastest S-ATA SSDs on the market today. It looks like it's going to stay that way, too, because it just about saturates the S-ATA 3 connection with its 500 MB/s write and read speeds. So if you've been putting off your SSD-purchase because there's always been a faster generation just around the corner, this excuse doesn't really work anymore.

    Corsair has also packed the sweet performance in a nice looking red shell and bundled the ever so important 3,5" bracket with the drive. Before S-ATA 4 or some other, faster connection comes around I really can't think of many ways to improve a SSD from here.
