Corsair Force LE 480GB TLC SSD Review (PN# CSSD-F480GBLEB)

Benchmarks, Anvil Storage Utilities

Anvil’s Storage Utilities is a powerful tool that was designed in order to provide you with a simple means of assessing the read and write performance of your Solid State Drive or Hard Disk Drive.

The benchmark tool helps you monitor and check the response time of your unit as well as view the system information collected using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).

Anvil’s Storage Utilities has been designed to be the most comprehensive benchmark tool for Solid State Drives on the market. That does not mean that you can’t use it for conventional platter-based drives as well, but you do get the most out of the program when you test the speed and performance of SSDs with it. The program has gone through a series of beta and release candidate builds already and is currently available as Release Candidate 3. It is usually linked from this forum thread, which currently is not the case for the RC build which you can download here directly. You can’t use previous builds as they are set to expire automatically.

You can run a benchmark right away by selecting a drive from the menu at the top right or check out the settings first to make sure everything is configured correctly here. Here you can simulate a compression level of the test file, e.g. database, application or uncompressed, and whether you’d like to use the same test file on consecutive runs or generate a new one every time. As far as benchmarks go, you can run a standard SSD benchmark that is testing read, write, or both performances of the drive, or run threaded IO benchmarks only.

Anvil Storage Utilities brings a host of information to the board and our Corsair Force LE 480GB drive hits 506,05MB/s having read 2,048MB with 126.51 IOPS on the Seq 4MB read test. The Seq 4MB test shows 451.90MB/s at 112.97 IOPS with 1024MB written.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC

Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24GB

At the same time Nvidia released the excellent RTX 3080 they also released the RTX 3090, a successor to both the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX. While the RTX 3080 comes with 16 GB VRAM, Nvidia has put a whopping 24 GB VRAM on the RTX 3090. In addition the RTX 3090 comes with 10496 CUDA cores (up from 8704 for the RTX 3080), 82 Streaming Multiprocessors, a wider memory interface and almost 1 TB/s in memory bandwith. Today I am looking at the Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24 GB. As the name implies it comes with a (minor) overclock. How much faster is it than the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC? Is it worth the extra money? Read on to to get the answers on these and many other questions.
