HD Tune Pro - Sequential Performance
Version and / or Patch Used: 4.55
Starting off with all of the drives in a clean state we wear the drives down into a steady state. HD Tune in the first in our thirty-two benchmark regiment. Just like the engineering sample we tested last year, the Optima has very good sequential performance despite using just four channels. Optima isn't the fastest drive on this list but it's very close to the fastest and when it comes to price verses performance, it's in another league.
The sequential write speed across the span of the flash is lower than many of the other drives on the chart, but if you look at the average speeds and ignore the maximum speeds, the Optima is competitive with several popular drives on the market.
HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes
Version and / or Patch Used: 22.214.171.124
This is an area where the Optima shows why we've waited anxiously for this controller to hit the market. After a reasonable amount of random writes to the drive, the write performance stays level and doesn't lose its mind like some of the other new SSDs on the market using 128Gbit die flash.
This comes from the firmware and programming. Silicon Motion has something special in this controller, we just don't know what it is yet.
