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

We've talked about high queue depths and prosumer focus, but when reading sequential data at QD1 like most of us do, the Comay BladeDrive G24 480GB is a beast compared to 2.5" SATA drives. On the chart, we also have ASUS' RAIDR 240GB, another PCIe AIO SSD.

Again, we see the BladeDrive dominating the chart, but the average QD1 sequential write performance isn't that much higher than some of the other drives on the chart.

HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes

After a reasonable amount of random writes, we run HD Tach at 128KB to see the sequential performance after a light random load. The BladeDrive does very well here; higher than many of the top SSDs we've ever tested.
