Alex Schepeljanski of Alex Intelligent Software develops the free AS SSD Benchmark utility for testing storage devices. The AS SSD Benchmark tests sequential read and write speeds, input/output operational performance, and response times. Because this software receives frequent updates, Benchmark Reviews recommends that you compare results only within the same version family.
When you look at the performance from a purely sequential point of view, the Corsair Reactor R60 performs admirably for the price you pay - 225.46MB/s read speed and 106.53MB/s sequential write speed. Sadly, once you start looking at 4k and 4k 64 thread, these numbers diminish greatly.
Compared with the results of other drives, you start to see the importance that a controller can have on a system. The Corsair Reactor uses the JMF612 controller and, although leaps and bounds better then traditional storage, is still at the bottom of the list when it comes to 64-thread 4k IOPS.
