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
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.
Before we start digging too deep into the benchmarks, I need to preface the results. The OCZ Vertex 3 240GB drive on the chart is our preproduction unit that was tested with older firmware. The 120GB Vertex 3 and OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G represent shipping products. OCZ has dispatched a retail 240GB drive, but at the time of writing it has yet to arrive.
When it comes to reading across the drive the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G is the fastest single drive we've tested to date. With an average speed of 430MB/s, the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G is hella fast.
All three of our SandForce SF-2281 based drives perform about equally when writing data across the drive. The average speed for the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G was 388MB/s. To put that into perspective you would need three to four platter drives in RAID 0 to achieve the same speed.
