SSD Performance HD Tune PRO | AS SSD Benchmark
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.
First off, a file test. We fire off 64MB of data comprising out of sizes ranging from 0,5 KB to 8 MB. Check it out. As you can see once we pass 32KB file size, the drive kicks in hard marching onwards to 270MB/sec. Maximum peak writes are roughly ~260 MB/sec, this is 100% on par performance.
In HDTune 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.
Once we start to measure write performance we see figures reach a continued write performance averaging out at roughly 146 MB/sec. That's a little bit on the low side for a SF1200 product. We have seen this behavior with many SandForce based products and this test suite in particular.
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. The 1 MB reads reached 257 MB/sec in reads.
Overall good write IOPS performance. We get 193MB/sec on 1MB file writes returned. Could be a tad better, but not bad.
