Strontium Hawk Series 120GB SSD Review

CrystalDiskMark and PCMark 7

CrystalDiskMark is a small benchmark utility for drives and enables rapid measurement of sequential and random read/write speeds. Note that CDM only supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ) with a queue depth of 32 (as noted) for the last listed benchmark score. This can skew some results in favor of controllers that also do not support NCQ.

Strontium Hawk 120GB CRYSTALDISKMARK P67

Benchmark Results: The Strontium Hawk posts very similar scores to what we saw on the AS-SSD benchmark which are a little weak compared to some of the other SF-2281 controlled drives in the comparison.

PCMark 7 Professional – Intel P67 Platform

PCMARK 7 Pro

We are continuing to use the new PCMark 7 software since they have updated it to version 7 which is specifically designed for Windows 7. It measures the performance of the latest PC hardware across a variety of common scenarios. PCMark Vantage 7 supports both system level and component level benchmarking and comprises several different test suites but for the purposes of this review, we employed the secondary storage suite. The nice thing about it is that you can submit your scores online and compare against others.

Benchmark Results: Not a bad showing here as the overall score is a decent 5,294 which is only a few hundred points off the highest score in the grid.
