As you will have gathered from the previous page, we measured the performance of each drive using three different programs: AS SSD, CrystalDiskMark, and HD Tune. We will be looking at the test results from each program in the order they appear in the list above.
It is important to note that we connected the SSDs to a SATA-600 port on our motherboard rather than a SATA-300 port, which could cause performance limitations. We used the default configuration in AS SSD for our tests.
On the sequential read test, the two drives exhibited a similar level of performance. However, on the sequential write test, the Corsair Performance Pro came out on top, outperforming the Force GT by 100 percent.
As you can see, the Corsair Performance Pro was 30% faster than the Force GT on the 4 KB random read test. However, the Corsair Force GT achieved a better score on the 4 KB random write test, outperforming the Performance Pro by a margin of 8 percent.
On the access time test, the Corsair Performance Pro performed 4% better than the Force GT on the read test and 70% better on the write test.
