Corsair Force GT (2012) 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - HD Tune Pro

With little variation in the market we go gaga when something comes along that's different. Designed on a myth, built by enthusiasts and sold like any other SSD, this one is truly different.

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 keyword in all of this is intense loads. We'll add to that a little later in this review. To be honest, the performance difference under typical benchmarks is like splitting hairs. There isn't a difference until we really get the drives under load, at least for the difference between the Force and Force GS.

Incompressible data performance is also a bit higher with the Force GT 32 chip design, but we'll have to wait for those tests which appear a little later on in this review.

 

In HD Tune Pro, we see the read and write performance you would expect from a well put together SandForce based SSD.
