HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:


Benchmark: measures the performance

Info: shows detailed information

Health: checks the health status by using SMART

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

Temperature display


HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.





In its current form the Biwin NuvoDrive NX has the same limitation we found on the Vertex 4. The single command read performance is limited to just under 280MB/s. In order to reach the full 500+MB/s when reading data you have to do it with native command queuing or more than one transfer at the same time.




When writing data across the NuvoDrive NX we didn't have the same limit. Here we see a solid 430MB/s average run when writing data across the drive. This test uses compressible data, the type that SandForce drives are able to write quickly. The NuvoDrive NX with the Novachips Bugatti still outperforms the SandForce SF-2281 drives in write speed. That was no easy task for sure.
