Asus Republic Of Gamers Tytan CG8580 System Review (i7/GTX680)

The Asus Republic Of Gamers Tytan CG8580 system uses a Sandisk 128GB U100 SSD as the boot drive, and two 1TB Seagate Barracuda hard drives (ST31005 24AS) for storage.


The Sandisk SSD delivers good sequential read and write results, although it is lagging behind leading drives available on the market today. The Seagate mechanical drives are as good as you will get within their sector.

The ATTO Disk Benchmark shows maximum read performance around 500 MB/s from the Sandisk Solid State Unit, and the mechanical drive scores around 120MB/s in both read and write tests.
