Strontium HAWK Series 120GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - HD Tune Pro

Strontium looks to lift your computing experience with the new low-cost HAWK Series. This is the first time we've published a SandForce based drive with Hynix 26nm flash. This is also our first public outing with FW 5.0.4. Many firsts today, this will be interesting.

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.

Reading sequentially across the drive with a single request produced an average speed of just over 413MB/s.

Writing sequentially across the drive with a single request (i.e. no NCQ) we achieved an average speed of 414MB/s. This is just a little over the read speed and makes the Strontium HAWK a very balanced drive when working with compressible data. We'll look at incompressible data a little further on in the review.
