HDTune 3.00

HDTune v3.00


HDTune tests a similar level of features that HDTach does, but with a slightly different access pattern and thus can provide us with an additional set of benchmark numbers to compare between storage configurations.  Here we can get the minimum, maximum and average transfer rates as well as the burst rates, access times and CPU utilizations.

In some fluke of software testing, the HDTune software didn’t see an increase in the burst speed though the average speeds saw a dramatic rise – the average read speed goes from 103 MB/s on the single drive to 183 MB/s on the pair in RAID-0.
