Corsair Neutron XTi 480GB SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2016-07-07

For the Neutron XTi, Corsair has picked up a controller we have seen with other low-cost TLC SSDs manufactured by PHISON, paired it with quite a bit of DDR3 RAM cache (1GB) and has also used Toshiba 15nm MLC NAND Flash in order to obtain sustained performance, no matter the file sizes we are transferring to it.
