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.

The read performance line across the drive while in an optimal state is very flat with the highs and lows being very close together. On average, the Chronos Deluxe read at 421MB/s, quite an achievement.

The write performance also held steady aside from the normal dip that happens at the start of the test. Here we recorded an average write speed of 404MB/s.

At this point let's point out that the Chronos Deluxe is the only drive on the chart using Toshiba Toggle Flash. Most of the drives we've tested using this NAND have been a little slower than their IMFT counterparts, but it looks like the Mushkin Chronos Deluxe is able to part with tradition.
