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.
In HD Tune Pro we recorded an average sequential read speed of 409.5MB/s. The peak was nearly 420MB/s, but the drive did dip to 342MB/s for a brief moment.
When writing compressible data across the drive we observed an average speed of 412MB/s. The test peaked at just shy of 440MB/s and only dipped to 395MB/s.
