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 442 MB/sec by the way.
In this article we test, benchmark and review the Samsung 840 Pro SSD. What a stunning piece of technology this is. An SSD that is extremely fast and actually amongst the handful of fastest storage units we have ever tested. Head on over into the review.
