HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.





The SanDisk Extreme II hits a home run with its first time at bat. The average sequential read performance across the drive is a chart topping 475.8MB/s.


Someone wake up Samsung and OCZ, SanDisk just crashed the hyper-performance party!




The SanDisk Extreme II is a switch hitter; it can swing the bat writing sequential data across the drive, too. The 441MB/s write average in HD Tune Pro is also higher than Samsung's 840 Pro.



HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes




The sequential write performance dips down after a realistic and controlled amount of random writes to the flash. Extreme II has a built-in garbage collection engine so over time the write performance will increase to fresh out of box states.
