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 HD Tune we see that Patriot Torqx beating every other drive we have tested to date, including the Solidata K5 SLC Barefoot drive that costs nearly twice that of the Torqx and has half of the data capacity.
The write test shows the Torqx the slowest of the Barefoot drives by a small margin. More interesting is the speed difference between the Patriot Torqx and the Patriot Warp V3.
