SSD Performance SiSoft Sandra HDD
SiSoft Sandra HD test
Let's do a synthetic test with Sandra, just to see if we can match the results we've seen in HD Tach.
What SANDRA also does (important for an HDD) is to test at several positions of the HD. See, at the outer part of a platter the performance is slower. The drive index test is what I refer to. The higher the better.
The WD Velociraptor is fast at 99 MB/sec and then the Falcon II shows performance up to 233 MB/sec speeds. Sandra returned a write speed of 155 MB/sec
