HD Tune Pro 4.5

HD Tune Pro is a hard disk utility and benchmarking utility for Windows. This tiny application allows you to scan your hard drives in search for errors or take a deeper look at several performance figured coming from the storage unit.

In HDTube we average out roughly 200MB/sec, okay performance could be a tad snappier,  not up-to par to what you'd expect. It's a little relative to this test though. Your Average HDD would do 45-65 MB/sec here, with a WD VelociRaptor topping is off just over 100~120 MB/sec.

Write performance, we know that the 34nm NAND memory is slightly slower. Once we start to measure write performance we see figures reach a continued write performance averaging out at roughly 163 MB/sec. Again a little bit on the low side for a SF1200 product. We see this behavior a lot on SandForce based products and this test suite.

The latest edition of HD Tune Pro allows random access read and write testing, a feature not available in other software tools. And this is certainly interesting to observe as that is just lovely performance.

Overall good write IOPS performance. We get 23MB/sec on 4KB files returned. Could be a tad better, but not bad.


AS SSD Benchmark

Newly added to the benchmark suite is this nice little German application called AS SSD Benchmark. This test gives a extensive result set. The test however is and will be popular for it's 4k file size read/write results.

Nothing to compare to just yet but we did ran some other tests with other SSDs and performance is up0-to speed alright. Excellent 4K file write performance.
