Tune Test – Sequential reading test

The Corsair Neutron XTi SSD isn’t the best
performing drive in this test, but the result is still very good.


ATTO disk benchmark

ATTO has become a standard tool for
measuring the data throughput of HDDs and SSDs. It measures the reading and
writing performance, using different file sizes and block sizes.

With the ATTO test the Corsair Neutron XTi
SSD was able to verify the numbers that Corsair displays on the box, 540MB/Sec
write and 560MB/Sec read, which is an excellent result.


CrystalDiskMark 3.0

CrystalDiskMark is quite a handy
benchmarking application, as it focuses on the file sizes that can cause problems
for a system drive.

In this test the Corsair Neutron XTi SSD gives
an excellent result for both read and write speed.

The two graphs below will give a more
detailed view of how the Corsair Neutron XTi SSD compares with other SSDs that
I have tested.

Here I present the graph for the read speed
tests. You can compare the Corsair Neutron XTi performance with other drives I
have tested.

Finally the results for the Corsair Neutron
XTi SSD for write speed, and again you can compare it with other drives.


AS SSD Benchmark

AS SSD benchmark is a benchmarking tool
specifically designed to test SSDs. The application tests sequential reading
and writing performance, 4K random reading and writing performance.

AS SSD benchmark also tests 4K threaded
performance. This is very exciting, as this test is the first available test
that I am aware of, that simulates how a PC operating system actually works. A
modern PC and OS, such as Windows Vista/7 does not just run a single thread at
a time, it runs many threads. The AS SSD benchmark "4K 64Thrd" tests
run 64 threads simultaneously throughout the test. If this result is good, then
you can be pretty sure the drive will perform extremely well as a system drive.

After the tests complete, AS SSD benchmark
derives a total score for the drive being tested. This is based on all aspects
of the test results, and gives an indication of how the drive is performing
overall.

Now let’s look at the results for the Corsair
Neutron XTi 480GB SSD in the form of a screenshot. All our other comparison
drives’ results are presented in the form of a graph.

This is another excellent result for the
Corsair Neutron XTi SSD.

Let’s head to the next page and run some
tests using PCMark 8…..
