SiSoft Sandra 2009: The SiSoft Sandra 2009 Professional software-suite contains loads of diagnostics and tests to measure the computers software and hardware. We've used the benchmark for read and write speeds:
The Corsair Extreme X128 gets 1. place with the Nova drive right behind it. The read speed is a bit below what they should, but the write speed is higher than stated by Corsair.
Everest: The Everest Ultimate 5.3 package is one of the leading benchmark applications, and at the same time the first new benchmark software we're throwing at the Corsair Extreme X128 drive.
Like in SiSoft Sandra, the results are close the stated numbers, and the Corsair Extreme X128 emerges as the winner, even though it lost on the linear read benchmark.
