One of the most active displays we saw at Computex was that belonging to G.Skill and you just might see the reason why below. We had a job to do though and were there to take a look at their Phoenix II Pro SSD which should be released in the very near future. The Phoenix II Pro is another of the many 'SandForce Driven' SATA 3 SSDs we had the opportunity to check out and, as always, these drives just rock for storage transfer speeds.
The Phoenix II Pro SSD will be available in capacities of 120 and 240GB and their specifications list transfer speeds up to 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write with 60, 000 IOPS at 4k random write. Having taken a close look at this SSD at Computex, we can say that their transfer speeds reached 559MB/s read and 518MB/s write but, even better, their small 4k randoms on Crystal Diskmark were up to 99MB/s which is an absolutely amazing result.
