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.

The sequential performance of SandForce drives is limited by the firmware right now so we have to get into the real-world tests to see the special edition SLC SSD really shine. The RAID performance will give us some nice eye candy, though. Here we see RAID scaling very well on the onboard Intel SATA III ports.

The read and write performance across the single drive is very good and in line with what the firmware allows for right now. The Intel SATA III RAID was configured with a strip size of 16 for all of the RAID tests today. This is the default setting.
