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.
Even though the claimed sequential read speed and the ATTO speed show an increase in sequential performance, the single read, QD1 speed is down a bit. This is exactly the same thing we observed the first time we reviewed the OCZ Vertex 4 drives. It seems more companies are decreasing the QD1 performance to increase multitasking performance. The BP3 does a better job now of keeping the minimum speed up, though, which is always a plus.
The write performance took off like a mad man with his shoes on fire. Here we also see a large increase to the minimum speed, again a big plus.
