SandForce SSDs boast speeds that push the limits of SATA 3Gbps. We put five to the test.
Corsair's latest Nova Series SSDs are based on the Indilinx Barefoot Eco drive controller and Intel 32nm NAND flash. We've seen that combination perform strongly for a great price, so we wanted to find if Corsair's drive could hit the SSD sweet spot. Read on to find out.
G.Skill has taken a new version of the Indilinx Barefoot drive controller and paired it with Intel 32nm NAND flash to make the Falcon 2. Boasting claimed speeds of 220/110MB/s read/write, we've found its performance is surprising!
OCZ Technology has launched its first SSD to retail under $100 - the 32GB Onyx. The question remains - is it cheap enough for the storage space on offer?
Kingston's latest SSD features a brand new drive controller from Toshiba and as a result boasts some very impressive sequential read and write speeds. Does it have what it takes to compete with the competition currently on the market?
SSDs promise blazing fast access times and data transfer speeds - but many SSDs suffer from horrendous performance degradation over time. The answer is TRIM: we take a look at SSD performance to find out why the latest, TRIM-enabled drive firmwares are crucial updates.
Think toughened storage extends to a bit of rubber around a memory key or wrapping a hard disk in bubble-wrap when you post it? Well that's just not good enough! Join us as we watch ioSafe roast, soak, bash, drop and crushes its latest NAS under the caterpillar tracks of digger before rescuing the data.
SSDs this year have been dominated by Indilinx and its ARM processor following stuttering issues with JMicron's first generation of drives. Now JMicron is back with its new 612 drive controller. We find out if it's got what it takes to dethrone Indilinx.
OCZ has announced a partnership with SSD specialist SandForce to launch a new range of consumer- and enterprise-grade SSDs - including models with 6Gb/s interfaces.
Kingston is a big name when it comes to memory, but not as well known when it comes SSDs. Boasting a Samsung drive controller, could Kingston's latest offering, the SSD NOW V+ 64GB change that? We fire up the benchmark rig and find out.
While SSDs might be the hot topic in storage this year, Western Digital remains focussed on HDDs, with the new 2TB Caviar Black it's new top end model. With four 500GB platters and a spindle speed of 7,200RPM, does the Caviar Black show there's life in HDDs yet? We find out.
SSDs are great, but Windows Vista wasn't designed with them in mind. If you want to get the best from your SSD, you'll need to perform a number of tweaks and fixes to not only improve performance, but keep your OS from needlessly thrashing your drive. We show you how.
A flaw in the PATA backwards compatibility of Marvell Semiconductors' first SATA 6Gb/s chip has lead to delays.
With the latest crop of SSDs proving they've got what it takes to thrash hard disks on every level, Patriot is getting in on the action with it's new Torqx. Using the very capable Indilinx ARM drive controller, does the Torqx match up to the competition? We find out.
The SSD market has been really hotting up lately, and today we're looking at another contender in the form of the G.Skill Falcon. Sporting the same drive architecture as the OCZ Vertex while costing a lot less, is this the SSD you're upgrade's been waiting for?
Memory specialist Corsair has entered the SSD arms race with the Corsair P256, a new 256GB drive based on Samsung's latest drive controller architecture. Featuring an ARM processor and a 128MB DRAM cache to maximise performance, is this the next big step in SSD performance? We find out.
COMPUTEX 09: Forget the OCZ Z-Drive, Marvell has premiered an SSD of even faster proportions
COMPUTEX 09: JMicron will launch its new JMF612 controller at Computex. It will apparently fix stuttering and still be fairly cheap.
The Serial ATA International Organisation has put the finishing touches to revision 3.0 of the SATA specification - and looks set to offer 6Gb/s throughput.
OCZ announces that its PCI-E Z-Card SSDs have gone into production, with capacities of up to 1TB, although the 1TB model costs £2,640.34.
The SSD arms race is hotting up, with the latest Samsung NAND flash based drives going toe to toe with Intel's high performance SSDs. We find out how the OCZ Apex 120GB, featuring dual disk controllers and quoted read speeds of 230MB/s write, fares.
G.Skill is back with its latest SSD and it's a whopper, the 256GB Titan. However, this drive isn't just big - it uses two drive controller chips rather than one to try and solve some of the issues that are common with SSDs, as well as speed things up too. Does it succeed? Read on to find out!
With promises of hugely improved read speeds without compromising on write speed, has the Solid State Drive finally come of age? We take a look at three of the best from the current crop of 2.5" SSDs and see if it's time to put that mechanical hard disk in the bin.
