These tests are very simple tests, but very important to
some users of SSD drives.
We simply started an application or game, and measured the
time taken for the application or game to fully load and start.
Application loading times
Adobe Fireworks CS3
These types of tests are becoming pretty pointless, as there
is so little difference in tangible performance between the modern SSDs.
Corel PaintShop Pro 12
Again, I doubt anyone could tell difference from the fastest
to the slowest modern SATA 6Gbps SSD, as they are all very close, but for
posterity the Corsair Neutron GTX is marginally the fastest.

FAR CRY 2
The OCZ Vertex 4 is marginally the fastest, with the Neutron
GTX finishing in second place in this test.
This time the Neutron GTX is marginally the fastest SSD when
loading this game.
By now it’s is becoming very clear that the Corsair Neutron
GTX has excellent performance, and is slogging it out with the OCZ Vertex 4 for
the performance crown.
Now let’s round off this article with the MyCE Reality
