In House Review - AMD Radeon R7 240GB SSD

Postby Ian on Tue Feb 24, 2015 5:17 pm

Today, CDRLabs brings you a review of AMD's new Radeon R7 solid state drive. Designed with gamers and graphics-hungry power users in mind, the Radeon R7 is based on OCZ's Indilinx-infused Barefoot 3 M00 controller. This cutting-edge controller is powered by both an ARM Cortex processor and OCZ's own Aragon co-processor and features an advanced, multi-level ECC engine, low write amplification, efficient garbage collection and adaptive flash management algorithms. The Radeon R7 is also equipped with up to 480GB of Toshiba's latest Advanced 19nm (A19) MLC NAND flash. Along with 30GB of host writes per day, the drive is capable of 550MB/s read and 530MB/s write speeds and a maximum of 90,000 4KB random write IOPS.

I'm still working some of the kinks out with the switch to Windows 8.1 so I went back and retested this drive with Intel's AHCI drivers. The performance was better for the most part, especially when doing sequential writes.
