Corsair Neutron NX500 800GB SSD Review

Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0.3.


The NX500 has faster 4K read performance at a deep queue depth than Corsair’s last drive – the M.2 format MP500. However, when it comes the drive’s write performance, the MP500 is a little faster.

Looking at the two benchmark result screens, it seems that the Phison PS5007-E7 controller has a preference for compressible data in some of the tests although it doesn’t seem to make so much difference when the drive is handling 4K data.

    I’d be more tempted to read this review if it wasn’t across 13 damn pages.

    How does it compare to Samsung’s 960 pro in 512gb and 1tb ssds? I’m simply too lazy to look for old 960 reviews.

    I would imagine that like you and myself, EVERYONE reading this review would like to know how it compares to the current champion, the Samsung 960 Pro, so I find it quite ridiculous that they wouldn’t include such a comparison.

    You do know there is an option to view all pages on one page, right?!

    I guess I’m not the only lazy one and I don’t write reviews. Or is this actually a “preview”? It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference these days.
