VisionTek GoDrive 120GB
When we recently took a look at the Racer 240GB SSD from VisionTek, we found it to have excellent performance with the SandForce SF-2281 controller and Toggle NAND chips under the hood. Able to chew through data, it also came with a premium price tag for those consumers who want peak performance and have the budget to pay for it. As we know, not everyone can afford the best of the best, so for the rest of us mere mortals, VisionTek has a new SSD that is more accessible to those of more limited budgets: the GoDrive.
The VisionTek GoDrive still has the impressive SF-2281 controller, but lacks the Toggle NAND. Instead, it has sychronous memory that should still be able to provide excellent performance, while also being a bit lighter in the wallet.
For those who still crave performance but don’t have the loftier budgets to always satisfy those wants, can the GoDrive stand up as a solid contender and alternative? Let’s get to it and find out.
