Biwin NuvoDrive NX Novachips Bugatti Preview - World Exclusive - Benchmarks - AS SSD

Biwin's NuvoDrive NX is the first SSD announced with the new Novachips Bugatti controller. Today Chris takes a full run with an engineering sample to see if this 10-Channel controller lives up to its racy name.

AS determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). The tool contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The synthetic tests are to determine the sequential and random read and write performance of the SSD. These tests are carried out without the use of the operating system caches.

 

In all synthetic tests the test file size is 1GB. AS can also determine the access time of the SSD, the access of which the drive is determined to read through the entire capacity of the SSD (Full Stroke). The write access test is only to be met with a 1 GB big test file. At the end of the tests three values for the read and write as well as the overall performance will be issued. In addition to the calculated values which are shown in MB/s, they are also represented in IO per seconds (IOPS).

 

Note: AS SSD is a great benchmark for many tests, but since Crystal Disk Mark covers a broader range of 4K tests and HD Tune Pro covering sequential speeds, we will only use the Copy Benchmark from AS SSD.

The further I roll through these benchmarks the closer the Novachips Bugatti controller looks like a Marvell controller. What's important is that the Bugatti is a fresh design on early firmware and hardware and the Marvell controller on the Plextor M3 Pro is already almost two years old.

 

In the AS SSD Copy test we see solid performance in all three tests. The NX is already able to compete with the drives already on the market today.
