The Corsair Neutron GTX owns the top of the charts for the time being with superb performance across the board, specifically in steady state usage. With the convergence of enterprise class features, massive performance, and consumer pricing, the Corsair Neutron GTX will be hard to beat.


From an IT professional/systems administrator perspective, the Neutron GTX is impressive, speedy but not remarkable. However, it trumped its competitors on sequential write tests.


The Neutron series as such comes really recommended for the storage performance mongers amongst you. The GTX just offers really strong performance in hefty workloads, has seriously good large-block sequential and random write speeds. Impressive is the word that sticksĀ in my mind.
