Storage and USB Performance
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Read
The Corsair Neutron XT boot drive is capable of exceptional read speeds and recorded one of the best scores we’ve encountered from a SATA SSD. On another note, the 1TB mechanical drive upheld very good figures although the USB 3.0 rates could be improved somewhat.
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Write
Here we can see the boot drive attains first position in its class and surpasses every other SATA drive in competing systems. The mechanical drive’s write speeds are worthy of commendation and offers great performance. Sadly, the USB 3.0 rates are fairly average.
