HD TACH 126.96.36.199
HD Tach is a low level hardware benchmark for random access read/write
storage devices such as hard drives, removable drives (ZIP/JAZZ), flash
devices, and RAID arrays. HD Tach uses custom device drivers and other
low level Windows interfaces to bypass as many layers of software as
possible and get as close to the physical performance of the device as
Benchmark Results: The Corsair Nova has a strong showing here again producing results typical of the Indilinx controller but got smoked by the Corsair Force.
CrystalDiskMark 3.0 x64 Beta
CrystalDiskMark is a small benchmark utility for drives and enables rapid measurement of sequential and random read/write speeds. This newest version is still in beta.
Benchmark Results: The Nova ties the Kingston 128GB V Series for sequential reads and comes second in all other metrics except for the 4k writes in which it took a bit of a beating. This number does jive with the results sheet we were given by Corsair.
Hang in there, one more set of benchmarks remain.
