Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD Driver
We look at the Corsair Force GT, an all new SATA 3 SSD. Compared to the Force 3 the difference in-between the two products is to be found in. The Corsair Force GT GB averaged % lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are. You probably already know that solid-state drives are fast. With up to 85, IOPS and read speeds of up to MB/s, Force Series GT is on another level.

Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD Driver
I will get to GT performance soon enough but lets suffice to say price equates to performance with these drives. Although I awarded our Editors Choice award Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD the Force Series 3 in its review, the truth is that it does not handle incompressible data as well as todays premium and more expensive SSDs.
We are still in the infancy period of SSD technology and the lion share of consumers purchasing or considering purchase are still using SATA 2 systems.
This statement may result in purchases by those who simply dont know that the SATA 3 SSD is downward compatible and may be upgrading in the near future. More importantly, it will reign in those who just want the newest and best in SSD technology. If you are one to believe that that color alone could not sell a product, guess again.
Warranty & Support
It hasnt been two weeks since we completed our Patriot Wildfire SSD Review and I sat there wondering how the color Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD would have been a great advertising idea for that drive and here we have it in the Corsair GT. In almost all of the tests the Force GT performed very close to the OCZ Solid 3, although it was hard to get a fair comparison when the size was half the capacity of the other SF models we reviewed previously. Real-World Benchmarks If you are new to StorageReview, one thing we try to focus on is how any given drive might perform under real-world conditions.
For Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD average user, trying to translate random 4K write speeds into an everyday situation is pretty difficult.

It helps when comparing drives in every setting possible, but it doesn't exactly work out into faster everyday usage or better game loading times. For this reason we turned to our StorageMark traces, which include HTPC, Productivity, and Gaming traces to help readers find out how a drive might rank under their conditions.
As we noted above at the end of our server profile tests, the Corsair Force GT is at a slight disadvantage by being a different capacity than the other top-performing SF models we have reviewed. While all have the same sixteen NAND channels filled, Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD really hard to equally compare drives of different capacities. The first real-life test is our HTPC scenario.
In this test we include: In this trace we recorded 2,MB being written to the drive and 1,MB being read. Our second real-life test covers disk activity in a productivity scenario. For all intents and purposes this test shows drive performance under normal daily activity for most users.
In this trace we recorded 4,MB being written to the drive and 2,MB being read. The Force GT really didn't stay with the pack in our productivity test. Each of the three runs we performed all scored right in the pack and very close the the averaged number we Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD for this test. We are guessing the firmware that allows it to have faster off-the-line performance in some tests has a few downsides in more lengthy benchmarks.
Our third real-life test covers disk activity in a gaming environment.

The trace captures the heavy read activity of each game loading from the start, as well as textures as the game progresses. In this trace we recorded MB being written to the drive and 7,MB being read.

In the final trace the GT picked up speed again, moving back into its 3rd place position ahead of the Solid 3. In our standard test which uses repeating data, we measured a write power rate of 1. Those were the two highest values during Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD usage besides the 2. Switching the fully random data for the sequential write test, the power value jumped from 1. At idle though, where the drive will probably see most of its life in many consumer systems, it only used 0.
This is matched by all many other manufacturers except for Intel and OWC on select 25nm models. The drive excells when it comes to single queue depth transactions, topping the charts, sometimes with wide margins over the main competition from OCZ.

The Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD looks great too with the red paint and metal body - it simply exudes quality build and materials. Then we get into the higher queue depth operations and real world benchmarks and the drive falls off the charts. Maybe Corsair is using aggressive firmware that's tweaked for performance in single queue depth scenarios.
