Replacing old-fashioned mechanical hard drives with modern solid-state technology is a quick and effective way to improve your PC experience, from nearly every aspect. The solid state drives based on flash memory technology deliver higher throughput, higher random IOPS, less heat generation, and less noise. The solid state storage makes a dramatic difference in your daily use: faster system startup/shutdown, quicker programs launching, and more responsive operation and multitasking.
The Corsair Neutron Series GTX is the performance line of SSDs that delivers the ultimate performance for workstation. Powered by an advanced Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD) SATA 3 SSD controller, the GTX excels in both random read/write speeds and sequential write speeds, and provides amazing responsiveness for all types of data-intensive work. It features SATA 3 interface with SATA 2/SATA compatibility, and 7mm slim profile, making it a hassle-free solution for your desktops, laptops or the ultra slim Ultrabooks.
Professional-grade LAMD SSD controller The LAMD controller is designed to deliver both super-high IOPs — important for data-intensive tasks like video and image editing — as well as superior sequential read speeds for lighting fast file access.
Great sequential read speeds, regardless of file type SSDs compress and decompress files on the fly. Some solid state drives hit a performance bottleneck when writing files that can’t be further compressed. This includes video, audio, and image files — and if your PC is also your entertainment center or handling media files as part of your job, lesser SSDs can slow you down. Neutron’s real-world performance design focus means impressive file loading times even with non-compressible data.
Built for SATA III Neutron Series is designed to support the latest SATA III 6Gbps standard to get the most performance out of the latest PCs. It’s also fully backward compatible with SATA 2.
Maintains its Performance Over Time Neutron Series SSDs support the Windows 7 TRIM command. This allows them to store only the data they need and perform memory optimization to ensure the fastest possible write speeds.
Install it almost anywhere Neutron follows the universal 2.5” standard, for quick installation into most notebooks. It fits into newer PCs which offer built-in 2.5” drive support. With a 3.5” adapter, you can install it in a standard hard drive bay. Many newer slim notebooks get that way at the expense of height restrictions for SSDs. Neutron is just 7mm high, so it can go where some other SSDs can’t.
SSD Advantages Because SSDs have no moving parts, they can handle shock, vibration and temperature changes far in excess of traditional hard drives. That's important for desktop PCs, and essential for notebooks. Traditional mechanical hard drives spin at thousands of revolutions per minute. This takes power, and generates noise and heat. Since SSDs have no moving parts, there's no noise or vibration, and the lower power consumption helps keep things cool inside your PC. It can also save battery life on notebooks.
