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.
The newer version of HDTach still can’t seem to get a good lock on SSD bursts either.
The 320 gave us the best SATA 3Gb/sec numbers we’ve seen to date.
