HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

- Benchmark: measures the performance

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.

 

 


Read Tests

Our read sustained transfer rate test shows some interesting data. We were able to average 129 MB/s but the system has some intense drop offs in performance going down to as low as 4.9 MB/s.

 


Write Tests

The write tests show the same type of numbers, only lower. It will be interesting to see how results like these affect our real world tests.
