HDTune v4.01 (*Updated*)
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 and access times. CPU utilization has proven negligible with modern processing horsepower, and is no longer included.
Bursts are similar to that reported by HDTach.
HDTune 4.01’s larger read block size gives the Plextor drive more favorable results than it received with HDTach.
Access times were similar to that seen with HDTach.
