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.

It looks like the Vertex 3 in its current form might have some competition from the Corsair Performance 3 when it comes to read speeds across the disk. The Vertex 3 had a significant drop in performance at the very beginning of the test and we were not able to get rid of this dip, and it only lasted a split second.

The average read speed was still a very impressive 302MB/s. HD Tune isn't a reliable way to determine real world performance, it's just a tool that helps us explain real world performance issues that can pop up.

The write speed across the Vertex 3 is remarkable. Here we observed over 380MB/s on average and a peak of 392.7MB/s.
