HDTune tests a similar level of features as compared with HDTach, but with a different access pattern. Thus provides 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 gives inconsistent results. Posted here for information only.
Raw sequential throughput figures look good for all models. At this point in the game, pretty much everything saturates SATA 6Gb/sec.
All SSDs have near negligible access times when compared to the HDD. We've expanded this chart to show a few more sig figs, which helps show the new Vector has made improvements over prior OCZ models.
