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.
We have a handful of other large capacity drives in the chart today to compare the Mushkin Chronos Deluxe. The controller and flash combination in the Chronos DX has proven itself many times and delivers predictable performance over a long period of time. In our sequential read test we achieved an average read speed of just over 426MB/s.
The sequential write speed measured at 408MB/s with compressible data. We'll look at incompressible data deeper in the review.
