G.Skill Phoenix Pro 120GB
Over the last year or so we’ve looked at many Solid State Drives that feature various technologies, controllers specifically, in the attempt to boost speed and performance. Some have been successful, some have not. The popular Indilinx-based SSDs have proven very adept and shown impressive results, though there have been some growing pains along the way.
But the new SandForce drives offer killer performance, even leaving the Indilinx drives in the dust. Normally such performance boosts come with a very hefty premium, but that’s not happening for the most part, but especially with the G.Skill Phoenix Pro 120GB. We have a drive here that is crazy fast and a pretty darn good deal when you look at the competition; frankly, it’s a standout.
So, just how fast is this Phoenix Pro? Let’s find out.
