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


Benchmark: measures the performance

Temperature display


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.





There are a few back stories with this article. The first and most obvious is the Force 3 and Force GT performance and how they compare to each other. Next on the list is the latest SandForce firmware. This will play out in the benchmarks between the Vertex 3 and Force GT, since they both use the same controller and more importantly, flash type.


When it comes to reading across the drive, we see the Force GT putting some big numbers on the board. With an average read speed of 411MB/s, this drive is very fast when working with compressible data.




The new Force GT is also very fast when writing data; here we see an average speed of 403MB/s, the fastest on this list comprised of the best of the best.
