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

 

Benchmark: measures the performance

Info: shows detailed information

Health: checks the health status by using SMART

Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

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.

We've spent quite a bit of time with the new beta firmware that fixes TRIM and are even using it in a production environment now in a daily use computer. We've yet to have a BSOD or run into any other issue. Since Kingston has now released 5.0.3 for their SandForce drives, and they have a much larger validation lab than I do, I'd say we're really close to mass availability from VisionTek as well.

 

The VisionTek Racer delivers nearly 413MB/s in our sequential read test ran across the drive with compressible data.

The write performance was even faster in this test, nearly 415MB/s. This makes the VisionTek SSD a leader on our HD Tune Pro benchmark chart filled with some of the best SSDs in the world.
