Standard

Corsair soaks they’re ultra-fast SSD’s in a fire-red color. Let’s see how they can perform.

Introduction

The red color and the addition of GT stands by Corsair for performance. The Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD impresses with 555 MB / s reading speed and 515 MB / s writing speed and 85,000 IOPS , according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If this is really true, we will find out for you.
Before we will give you our recommendation the performance of the GT must be excellent, cause this supposed to be the hallmark of this fiery red SSD. Otherwise Corsair advertises in this solid state drive only the general features. The SATA III controller is backward compatible with SATA I and II, as well as longer life due to lack of mechanics and the low temperature development.
Included is not only the small 2.5-inch drive, but also a 3.5-inch mounting frame, which is intended for common PC cases.
