HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write, and access time results. For the last couple of years, it has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must-have application for storage device testing.
Here, we see where a majority of the higher performance comes from, in sequential performance.
Both the sequential read and write performance are higher than what SATA has to offer.
