HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

Benchmark: measures the performance

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.

I doubt we are going to see much of a difference between the Vertex 3 and Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB drives without specifically targeting IOPS performance. Both drives are very fast, almost to the point of having more speed than you can really use. It's kind of like living in the city and driving a Ferrari Enzo. You have the ability to go 200 MPH, but rarely does an occasion happen when it'd be possible.

 

The Max IOPS model is like putting a better exhaust on the car. Now you have the ability to go 210 MPH, but the same basic issue is still there, you rarely ever get a chance to use it like that. Of course, not being able to use an upgrade has never stopped man from buying and trying to use anything.

In both the read and write speeds across the drive the Vertex 3 Max IOPS matches the Vertex 3. Both drives are insanely fast and offer the best raw read and write performance available today.
