Like clockwork, we've stumbled upon yet another updated SSD shootout almost a year to the day since the last one
, and nearly two years since the first
. Since 2008, we've seen OCZ introduce a new "garbage collection
" algorithm for its Vertex Series 120GB SSD, Corsair introduce its P64 and PhotoFast
make waves with its supposedly speedy G-Monster-V5. The benchmarking gurus over at HotHardware
had the patience to sit 'em all down and break out the rulers, and the long and short of it is this: the Vertex Turbo and G-Monster V5 bested the Corsair, with the PhotoFast drive in particular showing remarkably strong performance in read / write tests. Of course, all of the units were quite a bit quicker than traditional HDDs, but the folks at HH
maintained that SSD
pricing is still way out of reach for many consumers. But hey, if you've got the means to lay down $3 per gigabyte, feel free to tap that read link and ingest.
