The Bolt 2's speedy 500GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD produces our best 4K read speed at all queue depths. Sequentially, it is beat out by the Quiet Gaming's RAID 0 SSDs. 38.3 MB/s is an excellent result for the 4K read speed.

Write speeds are equally impressive, again coming in as the best in terms of 4K write speeds at all queue depths. Its sequential write speed is also the top of our chart. So far, the Bolt 2 has delivered top-of-chart performance.

HDTune

Version and / or Patch Used: 5.00

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.

The 2TB Western Digital Black used in the Bolt 2 isn't the fastest spinner for mass storage we've seen used, but its average sequential read speed of 141.7 MB/s is plenty good for loading those mostly sequential large game files.

Write speeds see the same as above: good, but not chart-topping. We find the drive manages an average sequential write speed of 139.6 MB/s.
