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.
Between RunCore's preconditioning and my own preconditioning, we see that the drive is going to show lower numbers in most of the synthetic tests. Luckily for us we are not too worried about the synthetic tests and just use them to get a picture of why a drive performs the way it does in the real world tests.
When it came to the write tests across the drive, the RunCore Pro V started out slow for a split second and then quickly reached its maximum speed. Once at its peak the Pro V held that speed through the rest of the run.
