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.
In our sustained transfer read test we see that the G.Skill is right on Intel's heels, but is not able to overcome Intel's advanced ten channel controller. Still, the TITAN is faster than the previous generations of MLC drives with ease.
The write tests are what everyone seems to be the most interested in these days now that MLC drives are starting to catch up to the SLC drives. Here we see the TITAN reaching a maximum write speed of 125 MB/s, a great deal faster than the X25-M. All of the MLC drives suffer from low minimum speeds, but the TITAN was able to reduce the number of low points which left the drive with a very good average write speed.
