We configured the test to read and write 4K, 64K and 256K chunks of data. Out of all the tests, the 4K read and write is the most strenuous. Here, the maximum read speed and write speed logged by the Force GS were slightly less than those of the Force GT. The sequential read and write speeds were 511 MB/s and 271.26 MB/s respectively, against slightly less than those of the Force GT.
In this test, the software was set up to read and write 500MB of data. The fastest was the Force GT with a sequential write speed of 309 MB/s. The Force GS was the slowest of the three at 284 MB/s. In the 4K read and write speed tests, the Force GT was the fastest.
ATTO Disk Benchmark
Here, we measured the sequential and random speeds using the File System Benchmark. The Force GS logged the lowest score – 504 MB/s read speed and 275 MB/s write speed.
Verdict and Price in India
If you’ve been keeping track of the prices of SSDs, you’ll notice that a 240GB SSD now costs as much as a 120GB one would a few months ago. A capacity of 240GB is sufficient to hold the operating system along with all programs and game installations. You can use a hard drive to store other data such as your media library and other files.
Between the Force GT and GS, choose either, and you’ll get almost the same performance. So, it would be wise to choose the one that’s cheaper by around Rs. 1,000, which is the Force GT. Also, unlike the Force GS, the GT is available in lower capacities such as 120GB, 90GB and 60 GB. They cost less than Rs. 10,000 – that's ideal if you don’t have a very high budget to build a PC.
