Unità a stato solido Neutron Series: prestazioni superiori di archiviazione senza compromessi

Le unità SSD Neutron Series garantiscono una velocità di archiviazione sostanzialmente di livello superiore, a prescindere dal tipo di lavoro. L'avanzato controller SSD SATA 3 Link_A_Media (LAMD) fornisce IOPS elevati ed altissima velocità di lettura sequenziale per affidabilità e risultati rapidi.

Prestazioni reali

La Neutron Series fornisce grandi prestazioni generali di archiviazione senza compromessi. Le sue prestazioni vanno oltre la media del mercato, e la velocità sulla quale fare affidamento è indipendente dal tipo di lavoro che si svolge sul proprio pc.

Caricamento rapido di file audio, immagini e video di grandi dimensioni

Molte unità SSD raggiungono tempi rapidi di caricamento in presenza di file che possono essere compressi e decompressi nella fase di lettura/scrittura, ma rallentano incredibilmente nella lettura di dati già compressi. Neutron va ben oltre, offrendo prestazioni impressionanti persino con dati compressi e dati non comprimibili.

Prestazioni che spingono i limiti del SATA 3 6Gb/s

Neutron Series è stata concepita per trarre tutti i vantaggi dagli ultimissimi standard ad alta velocità ed ottenere le migliori prestazioni dai pc di ultima generazione. La compatibilità con SATA 2 è garantita al 100%.

Ampia compatibilità con PC, portatili e portatili ultrasottili

Le unità SSD Neutron Series adottano lo standard universale da 2,5” e sono facilmente installabili su PC desktop con alloggiamenti per unità da 2,5”. Oppure, possono essere montate su un alloggiamento per unità disco rigido utilizzando l'adattatore da 3,5” in dotazione.

Il fattore di forma di 7 mm è compatibile sia con i notebook standard che con i modelli più sottili di ultima generazione. Qualora si decidesse di passare a un portatile più sottile, non sarà necessario rinunciare all'unità Neutron.

Caratteristiche

Controller LAMD SSD di qualità professionale

Il controller LAMD è progettato per assicurare prestazioni elevatissime in ambito IOPS, ideali per le applicazioni ad alta quantità di dati come l'editing di video e immagini, e velocità sequenziali di lettura superiori, per un accesso rapidissimo ai file.

Eccezionali velocità sequenziali in lettura, indipendentemente dal tipo di file

Le unità SSD comprimono e decomprimono i file istantaneamente. Alcune unità allo stato solido subiscono un brusco rallentamento delle prestazioni quando devono aprire file che non possono essere ulteriormente compressi, come file video, audio e di immagini. Inoltre, se il PC viene usato anche come centro di svago o se i file multimediali sono uno strumento di lavoro, l'uso di unità SSD di qualità inferiore può rallentare significativamente l'attività. Le unità Neutron, invece, progettate proprio per garantire prestazioni reali, sono in grado di caricare file a velocità incredibili, anche in caso di dati non comprimibili.

Installabili ovunque

Le unità Neutron adottano lo standard universale da 2,5” e sono rapidamente installabili su gran parte dei PC notebook. Possono essere installate sui PC più recenti, dotati di supporto incorporato per unità da 2,5” e, grazie all'adattatore da 3,5” in dotazione, anche negli alloggiamenti per dischi rigidi standard.

Molti tra gli ultimi modelli di notebook ultrasottili impongono restrizioni penalizzanti alle unità SSD. Le unità Neutron hanno uno spessore di soli 7 mm, perciò possono essere installate anche dove altre unità SSD non riescono ad arrivare.

Costruite per SATA 3 a 6 Gb/s

La linea Neutron Series GTX è progettata per aderire ai più recenti standard di alta velocità e ottenere le massime prestazioni dagli ultimi modelli di PC. Inoltre, offre retrocompatibilità completa con le unità SATA 2.

Prestazioni invariate nel tempo

Le unità SSD Neutron Series supportano il comando TRIM di Windows 7. Ciò permette di memorizzare soltanto i dati necessari e di eseguire l'ottimizzazione della memoria per garantire velocità di scrittura più elevate.

Affidabilità dello stato solido

Poiché le unità SSD non dispongono di parti mobili, sono maggiormente in grado di sopportare urti e variazioni di temperatura rispetto ai dischi rigidi tradizionali. Se questo aspetto è importante per i PC desktop, per i notebook diventa essenziale.

Raffreddamento e funzionamento silenzioso con il minimo consumo energetico

I dischi rigidi tradizionali effettuano migliaia di rotazioni al minuto, consumando molta energia e generando calore e rumore. Poiché le unità SSD sono prive di parti mobili, non sono interessate da vibrazioni o rumore, mentre il consumo energetico ridotto consente di mantenere bassi i livelli di temperatura all'interno del PC. E nei portatili aumentano anche la durata della batteria.

Corsair SSDs with Zero Overprovisioning Space

Much has been written about overprovisioning and its implementation on SSDs. In short, overprovisioning, or OP, is a portion of storage space on an SSD that is reserved for use only by the SSD controller. The three most common uses for this space are wear leveling, the replacement of bad blocks, and read-modify-writes. Overprovisioning serves to help increase both the longevity and performance of SSDs and it is a very common practice among SSD manufacturers.

However, some users would like to be able to buy their SSDs without the built in overprovisioning and make the decision to OP, or not to OP for themselves. They prefer the flexibility of deciding for themselves when to OP and how much space to use based on their specific needs. Corsair has announced and is now offering SSDs without this overprovisioned space.



Corsair SSDs with overprovisioning space typically have used 7% of the total SSD storage capacity. This means that users now have a choice with these new drives to use them with or without overprovisioning. Users can manually overprovision the drives if they wish or, they can leave them at their full capacity with no overprovisioning and enjoy the extra space.

For users of 256GB SSDs, this means they can have an extra 16GB of storage capacity on their drive over the equivalent 240GB overprovisioned SSD. Of course, RAID users will benefit even more as the number of drives is increased.

In reading some of that aforementioned information about overprovisioning, I've found a great deal of very useful information over at Anandtech. Here's a diagram from one of Anand's SSD articles highlighting how overprovisioning works.

Corsair SSDs with Zero Overprovisioning Space



Our initial offerings in the non-OP drive arena are in the Force Series GS and the Neutron Series with more to come. For more information on our SSD lineup, please visit our Corsair website SSD page.

To OP, or not to OP. That is the question. Whether tis nobler to the PC performance...
