If you like the performance of one Corsair Neutron GTX, you'll be amazed how fast a pair of them are....

Corsair continues their transition to new NAND with the switch of the Corsair Neutron GTX to 19nm Toshiba MLC . At launch the Neutron GTX was a stellar performer and Corsair had a period of exclusive access to the LAMD 'Amber' LM87800 controller. This...

All in all, the Corsair Neutron Series GTX is a good SSD. The only problem is that it doesn't perform any better than the standard Neutron Series—it's 16 GB smaller and the over-provisioning doesn't make a huge difference. Our advice? Go with the regular...

We managed to get our hands on OCZ's current SSD flagship, the Vector and pit it against Corsair's top offer in a clash of titans. Since it launched late last year, the OCZ Vector has been getting nothing but words of praise, mostly thanks to the...

When we last paid a visit to the Corsair Neutron GTX late last year, we declared it one wicked-fast SSD, but it was unfortunately nicked at the finish line by the Samsung 840 Pro. Corsair isn't too worried about that, though, and seems to have...

It seems that 256GB is the current sweet spot when it comes to SSD capacities, with this size on offer in four of this test's six drives. Corsair's Neutron GTX is the firm's latest high-end drive, and it's the most expensive 256GB SSD on test at...

It isn't every day tech writers get surprised, but heads were certainly turned (including mine) when Corsair announced its 4th generation SSDs based upon the controller from some unknown controller company. Yet, apparently this “unknown” company has been...

In June, 2012 we published a large group test of SSDs with capacities of 120/128 GB and 240/256 GB . Those are still the most popular sizes, judging from what people search for on Hardware.Info. The world of SSDs didn't stand still, and since then a...

New Corsair's Neutron GTX series SSDs use the new LAMD's LM87800 controller and as our benches prove, the drives have a lot to offer. This is the first LAMD LM87800-based drive we had a chance to test and we are happy to report that we could not identify...

The Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD is a fast performer overall, and is budget priced considering its performance. It also carries the bonus of a five-year warranty. But in our tests it was one of the slower SSDs we're tested recently when writing our...

Like we stated earlier in the review, if you are a multitasking user who deals with incompressible data then you really can’t do much better than the Neutron GTX 120GB. With its incredibly fast access times and unmatched 4k performance at high queue...

Corsair surprised us all at Computex this year when they announced their Neutron and Neutron GTX SSDs based on a so-far relatively unknown Link A Media Devices (LAMD) controller. While LAMD was new to the consumer-grade SSD controller market, the...

The first thing that pops out at you about the Corsair Neutron GTX 120GB is, obviously, the incredible performance. The point that drives it home, however, is that this is a 120GB drive. While most 120GB drives suffer performance meltdowns in...

As the controller is the most important part of a SSD drive and virtually defines the entirety of its performance, it is only natural that every company is seeking the optimal solution in order to gain leverage over the others. Corsair surprised us...

Shop around and you'll find that plenty of high-capacity SSDs are readily available at under £300. The 480GB SanDisk Extreme (£275) and the 512GB Crucial M4 (£285) are perfect examples; they offer excellent performance and high-capacity at a competitive...

When Corsair recently sent us the 480GB Neutron GTX we were excited to have the chance to observe the new LAMD Amber controller at a different capacity point. Taking a fresh look at the drive now that it has matured a bit will give us some perspective of...

We got off track a bit with the new charts, but they give us a new look at metrics we've ignored for far too long. Once we have more data collected and organized by capacity size we can fill the charts in with relevant comparisons. In total we have...

Pairing the Link_A_Media Devices LM87800 controller with Toshiba toggle NAND has proven to be a formidable combination that puts the Corsair's flagship Neutron GTX SSD on the very short list of drives we'd want in our system....

So let's wrap it up. Normally we'll start here with performance, but let's first address the elephant in the room – the new LAMD LM87800 controller. Personally, I think it's a very solid start for Corsair and LAMD. Despite slightly lower sequential read...

Overall I would have to say I’m really impressed with the Corsair Neutron GTX’s performance. We like the fact that the drive performs as well with incompressible data as it does compressible data. Another thing we really like is that a drive of this...
