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.
Where HDTach misrepresented sequential speeds, HDTune misses the mark on its burst test.
A burst of 220 MB/sec is just plain wrong where that same drive can pull nearly 600 MB/sec
in bulk sequential transfers.
Not only does the Ibis peel away from the RevoDrive, it’s dangerously close to ioDrive territory!
