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.
HDTune’s burst test favors the new VR, but this particular test tends to be generally inconsistent.
The slowest the new VR will go is just under 100MB/sec!
Random access times show the two VR’s roughly matching.
