HD Tune PRO - Sequential Performance


Version and / or Patch Used: 4.55




The 960GB model is the slowest in the Extreme PRO product family, but that doesn't mean it's slow compared to other 1TB drives on the market. The Extreme PRO 960GB delivered one of the highest results we've recorded to date in the HD Tune Pro Sequential Read test at just over 475 MB/s. The drive averaged over 474 MB/s in this test, and the minimum was just shy of 470 MB/s.




In the write test, we get to see the consistent performance, a theme that will carry through in this review. The 64Gbit die allow the 960GB to complete the test quickly.



HD Tach – Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes


Version and / or Patch Used:




After writing a reasonable amount of random data to the Extreme PRO, the read performance stayed arrow straight, and the write performance didn't drop off in large chunks like we find with many other drives.
