HD Tune Pro
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
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.
With platter drives we rarely see benchmark scores double in a two drive RAID 0 configuration, but with SSDs it's fairly common to see the numbers nearly double. Here we see just that with the average read speed from across the array coming very close to doubling the performance.
The write speeds actually do much better and more than double the performance of a single drive. A pair of Corsair F90's in RAID 0 on the Intel ICH that nearly everyone has built into their computer now is a very good way to update even an older system.
