HD Tune Pro
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.
When it comes to reads we see that today's article will be a real battle between the Intel ICH / SandForce SSD and the HighPoint (Marvel) HBA / Crucial (Marvel) SSD combination drives.
In ATTO we saw C300 R0 performance over 650MB/s, but in HD Tune the numbers drop quite a bit. We still see the average and maximum performance increase from a single drive, but the patterns on the graph show a constant yet predictable change in data flow.
The SandForce SF-1200 and Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB both write data at around the same speeds, 200MB/s as single drives. In RAID 0 we see the Intel / SandForce combo is able to pull away from the C300's on the HighPoint RocketRAID 640.
