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.
HDTune’s burst test didn’t agree with the RevoDrive, likely for the same reason as HDTach’s sequential test.
The RevoDrive x2 comes dangerously close to the throughput figures seen from Fusion-IO.
HDTune’s access time test was not as nice to the PCIe solutions.
