Corsair Neutron & Neutron GTX: All Capacities Testedby Kristian Vättö on December 19, 2012 1:10 PM EST
AnandTech Storage Bench 2011—Light Workload
Our new light workload actually has more write operations than read operations. The split is as follows: 372,630 reads and 459,709 writes. The relatively close read/write ratio does better mimic a typical light workload (although even lighter workloads would be far more read centric).
The I/O breakdown is similar to the heavy workload at small IOs, however you'll notice that there are far fewer large IO transfers:

As our Light suite is more read centric, the benefit of more and faster NAND is smaller. All except the 120GB Neutron perform almost equally and even the 120GB Neutron is only ~16% behind whereas in our Heavy suite it was as much as 30% slower than the larger capacities.
