Corsair Neutron NX500 800GB SSD Review

IOMeter is another open source synthetic benchmarking tool which is able to simulate the various loads placed on hard drive and solid state drive technology.

We test with both random read and write 4k tests, as shown above. There are many ways to measure the IOPS performance of a Solid State Drive, so our results will sometimes differ from manufacturer’s quoted ratings. We do test all drives in exactly the same way, so the results are directly comparable.

  
Random 4K read/write performance of the NX500 800GB drive is quoted as up to 300,000 IOPS and 270,000 IOPS, respectively. With our test setup of IOMeter, we couldn’t match those official figures.

The tested drive produced 211,912 IOPS for reads and 169,365 IOPS for writes and while these didn’t match the official numbers they are the fastest we have seen from a Corsair drive to date.

    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.

    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.
