Today we are looking at the Corsair Nova 128GB SSD. The Nova uses older technology when compared to the latest and greatest from SandForce and Marvell, but tried and true goes a long way, especially when the price is this good. Let's see how the Nova compares to previous Indilinx Barefoot drives and the new next-gen products on the scene.


ATTO Baseline Performance


Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34


ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.




From the first test we are off to a good start. Here we see that the Corsair Nova performs better than what Corsair claims in their promotional material.
