HD Tach has been around for a long time and is excellent when it comes to testing hard drive performance. It is also a very handy program when it comes to testing the controller used on particular motherboards. Tests such as Read, CPU Utilization and Burst are available at a click of the button and give you a good idea of how the hard drive can perform from system to system.

In HD Tach we get a chance to see the AVADirect Custom Small Business Server run the gauntlet in an unformatted state. This way we can see the full 8TB of storage in action on the HPT RocketRAID to gauge a baseline for performance.

Our unformatted, unpartitioned read speed tops out very close to 325MB/s, but has an average speed of 254.2MB/s. The write speed fairs a little better with the write speed reaching very close to 400MB/s and an average write speed of 292.5MB/s.
