Leochan - OK, I'm confused....The orders you listed the AS SSD benchmarks don't seem to make sense with the names of the drives in the upper left corners of the graphics 0_o

I'm actually pretty impressed with this. My only annoyance is that lower storage models with SSDs tend to also have lower speeds as well. I will NOT need a whopping 250GB of storage for an OS and high priority programs, I just won't >_>

Would be nice if there was a high speed 60GB to 80GB drive that had a lower price (Like I could live with $180 even. Bit under half the price with a fraction of the storage yes, but all the same speed). Ah, I can dream eh?

Oh good, much better nao

As far as the AS SSD goes I wonder how well it would scale with a RAID0 setup? It wouldn't match the RAID0 setup of the Pyro SE in terms of read time, but considering the overall score difference between a single Performance Pro and the Pyro SE in RAID0 is about 160 points, I'm curious as to the score it would get. Certainly it would be considerably higher overall. It's write time would get a nice boost out of it, and it's already better as it is.

But really, those access times blew the Pyro SE out of the water, in fact it's the only drive tested with access times below 1/10th of a millisecond 0_o More than that, the read and write access times being comparable is another significant thing, since SandForce controller seems to have problems with that.

Consistent AND fast indeed!

My next SSD will probably be a Marvell 9174 (or later, improved generation) controller based since its ability to deliver consistent and fast performance across the board is winning me over. Hah, two SSD reviews in two days, and I was very impressed with the results of both

Ren of Heavens - But do they have the same speeds? That's the thing. All the fastest drives are also the higher capacity drives. From what I've seen, the lower capacity models with drives tend to be slower.

Yeah, the lower capacity Force 3/Force GT have pretty much the same speeds as the high capacity ones. There is a lot of the older generation drives in that capacity though (Corsair Force etc) which are based on SF-1200 rather than SF-2000.

60GB Force 3 = 525/490
60GB Force GT = 555/495
90GB Force GT = 555/505
120GB Force GT = 555/515
240GB Force GT = 555/525

Whereas a last gen (SF-1200) 60GB Force is 280/270
