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.

The Patriot Wildfire 120GB is starting off strong with nearly 380MB/s average read across the drive. Our baseline Vertex 3 was a hair faster, so the results are in line with what we experienced with the Max IOPS drive we tested a couple of weeks ago.

The write test comparison went a bit better between our SandForce SF-2281 controlled drives. Taking the Vertex 3 drives out of the equation, look at how much faster the Patriot Wildfire is compared to other next generation drives available on the market.
