Test System

Before we look at the numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. Windows has had the power option set to high performance.

Intel Z97 Test System

The Intel Z97 platform that we used to test the Corsair Flash Voyager GTX 128GB drive was based around the ASUS Z97-A motherboard with BIOS 1008 that came out on 5/29/2014. The Corsair Dominator Platnium 8GB 2133MHz memory kit was set to XMP 1.3 memory profile settings, which is 1.65v with 9-11-11-31 2T memory timings. The Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD was used as the primary drive (uses 19nm NAND and M310 firmware).

CrystalDiskInfo 6.1.14 Readout:

For the Plextor M6e 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD, the readout on CrystalDiskInfo 6.1.14 shows that APM, NCQ, S.M.A.R.T. and TRIM are available on the controller. The firmware version that we are running at the time of testing was S9FM0.17. It should be noted that the firmware could potentially be updated, but Corsair has no plans on releasing firmware updates for USB flash devices unless a critical issue is found.

    it’s removable.

      No, it’s not removable. It’s 100% a fixed disk, as you can create more than 1 partition on Corsair Voyager GTX.

    Is this a fixed disk or removable?
    If it’s fixed, it will be listed in Performance tab from Windows 8/8.1 and in CrystalDiskInfo.
    Thanks

      It’s a fixed disk which is useless for me. I’m gonna sell this thing and go for Patriot Supersonic Magnum which is a removable disk instead.
