HD Tach is a physical performance hard drive test that uses a special kernel mode VXD to get maximum accuracy by bypassing the file system.
We look at average (not peak!) write performance in this test. In addition to sequential read performance, HD Tach tests the drive's random access time. Random access is the true measure of seek speed. Many drives advertise sub 10 millisecond seek speeds, but seek speeds are misleading.
Also again, without a physical head that moves around, the SSDs are just so fast as they have no mechanical moving parts. Here obviously, the smaller the number is, the better. In this case, 0.1 ms.
The Burst speed measured in HD Tach was as well 352 MB/sec by the way.
Patriot EP Pro SDHC UHS-1 32GB review We review the Patriot EP Pro SDHC UHS-1 32GB flash card. It's not your average SDHC storage card, this little fracker can read at 90 Mb/sec and write at 50 Mb/sec, making it amongst the fastest SDHC cards available on the market.
Patriot Pyro SE 240GB SSD review Patriot wanted to release another SSD, something a little over the top and as such that meant releasing the Pyro SE SSD. While based on the SandForce 2281 controller Patriot did apply some tweaks to make the product even faster. To keep it up to snuff it comes with synchronous NAND flash memory. According to Patriot that will increase its sequential read and write performance to 550MB/s and 520MB/s.
Patriot SuperSonic Magnum USB 3.0 flash drive review Patriot Memory recently released a USB stick, all 3.0 compatible and it's called the SuperSpeed Magnum. That surely hints towards a nice caliber. We test the 64GB version of this model, and their Magnum .. well it's the fastest and most l33t little fracker your money can get you with read performance of 200 MB per sec.
Patriot WildFire 120GB SSD review We look at an offering from Patriot memory, they added two new SATA 3 (SATA 3 6Gs) SSDs in their WildFire lineup, the WildFire in 120GB & 240GB capacities (480GB coming as well), All SATA 3 of course. Both drives come with that already famous SandForce SF-2281 controller to deliver at up to 550 MBps read and 510 MBps write speeds.
