HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.
In HD Tune Pro we measured sequential read performance at 458.1MB/s average. The maximum and minimum read measurements were very close to the average score.
The average sequential write score was just over 200MB/s. The minimum was very close to the average, but the maximum spikes were much higher at 267.1MB/s.
HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes
Sampling at a higher block size, HD Tach runs after the HD Tune Pro random read and write tests. The lowest write speed measured was around 30MB/s. A majority of the reads and writes took place around 190MB/s, though.
