Legacy Benchmarks




It has been awhile since I have used HDTune and many other benchmarks in a review. I thought with the 10TB it might be a solid tool for comparison for many of you so here we go starting with HDTune read. Starting at 242 MB/s the drive has a rather slow decline in performance, which was surprising as I thought performance would drop when the cache was full. Burst throughput was 265 MB/s while peak access was 11.6ms.





Write performance was quite similar although we start at a lower 239 MB/s and end at 112 MB/s.




Moving to HDTach 8MB zone test, the 10TB Helium drive reached a burst of 265 MB/s once again with a solid sequential speed of 247 MB/s.




AIDA64 showed solid promise with 244 MB/s in read and 176 MB/s in random read. Buffered read reached a nice 304 MB/s.




Last, we have CDM where the EnCap 10TB came in at 249 MB/s read and 241 MB/s write.
