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.
HD Tune has never been too kind to RAID arrays since it tests at a single queue depth. SandForce controllers love high queue lengths and the RevoDrive 3 X2 uses four of them.
The same is true for the write test. The low queue depth really hurts performance and doesn't allow the RevoDrive 3 X2 to really take flight.
