HD Tune Pro - Sequential Performance


Version and / or Patch Used: 5.50




In the sequential read test, we measured the average sequential read speed at 412 MB/s. This is lower than many of the newer SSDs on the market in this capacity, but still a solid performance to start out our testing.




Our sequential write test for this comparison chart shows an average write speed of 402 MB/s.



HD Tach - Sequential Write Performance after Random Writes


Version and / or Patch Used:




After writing to the drive with sequential and random data, we ran HD Tach with 128KB sequential data to see if the Kingston HyperX 3K had any significant write performance drops in a reasonable consumer steady state. We observed one point where the write performance dropped to 250 MB/s. The performance loss wasn't as dramatic as we've seen on other products.
