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.
Most SSDs controllers are a little unpredictable when you start playing around with the flash configuration, but the SandForce controller has been a very good performer no matter how it's configured. Here we see the same high level of performance from the F90 as we did with the 120GB drives.
That statement also carries over to the write performance as well. In HD Tune we see that the write speed is still over 200MB/s average, down just a hair from the 120GB drives.
