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 Patriot Warp V3 has a slight edge over the G.Skill TITAN when it comes to read performance and a solid 20+ MB/s over the Warp V2 in average read speeds.
Write speeds are where MLC drives take the biggest hit and although the drive only made it down to 16 MB/s for a brief moment, the speed hurt the V3's average score.
