Corsair P256 256GB SSD Review
SSDs have come a long way in the last six or seven months, not only in terms of capacity and cost but also when it comes to performance. Affordable drives based on JMicron drive controllers - which showed promise but were let down by poor random write speeds - have given way to those powered by dedicated ARM processors and dedicated cache chips.
We’ve already looked at one such drive in the form of OCZ’s Vertex, built around Indilinx’s 'barefoot' platform and it crushed every other MLC based drive on the market at both sequential and random speeds, while suffering very little from the performance degradation that can affect Intel’s SSDs. It was the first SSD we’ve seen that’s substantially faster than a conventional hard disk drive no matter the performance criteria, and it proved worthy of a recommendation.
Today we’re looking at Corsair’s take on an ARM chip and cache enhanced SSD, built using Samsung designed architecture. Considering Indilinx is staffed by ex-Samsung employees the two competing designs will likely share more than a few things in common, so let’s take a closer look.
