It’s the attack of the SandForce clones! Can any heroic atomic-powered SSD come to save us? Does Corsair’s Neutron have what it takes to rescue our PC in distress? Will the hordes of the positively-charged solid-state armies be neutralized in time? Tune in this week (or now) to find out!
Synthetic: HD Tune Pro 5.0
HD Tune is still primarily an HDD benchmark, but we include it as an alternative for those consumers that prefer it for one reason or another. The free version does not perform write tests, but otherwise is available for free here.
Similarly, performance under HD Tune is very good with Corsair’s drive, offering the best Maximum and Average read transfer results, and second highest minimum transfer result. That said, results are more mixed with HD Tune’s random transfer tests.
