Chillblast Fusion Centauri Ryzen Threadripper Ultimate Review (w/ 2 x GTX 1080 Ti)

Here we test the Chillblast Fusion Centauri Ryzen Threadripper Ultimate ‘s storage performance, using CrystalDiskMark 5.1.1.

Chillblast Fusion Centauri Ryzen Threadripper Ultimate SSD

There’s little to choose between the Samsung SM961 SSD used in Armari’s AMD machine and the Samsung 960 Pro drive used in the Chillblast – at least when it comes to speed. The Chillblast’s read and write speeds of 3,517MB/s and 2,037MB/s are a couple of hundred megabytes ahead, but both are among the fastest drives on the market.

That means the Chillblast’s boot times will be exceptional, and that its application and file loading times will be top-notch.

The Centauri is further ahead of Armari’s Intel machine, which returned more ordinary read and write speeds alongside lesser drive capacity.
