About HD Tune Pro 5.70

HD Tune Pro is a hard disk / SSD utility with many functions. It can be used to measure the drive's performance, scan for errors, check the health status (S.M.A.R.T.), securely erase all data and much more.

Unfortunately, HD Tune does not generate any fancy independent graph outputs in particular, so I just took a screenshot of the program. The Crucial P5 Plus 2TB's throughput remained very flat on average. While HD Tune is more of a drag race than a clear indication of real-life performance, it is an excellent storage performance reference among SSDs with the same controller. The results were good across the range and the recorded access time was low, as we would expect from a solid state drive.

The P5 Plus 2TB posted an average of 1677.6MB/s for its sequential read speed, which is pretty low compared to other budget mainstream PCIe 4.0-based drives. Relative to other models in a similar category, the Crucial P3 Plus 1TB delivered 2888.0MB/s, Crucial P3 Plus 4GB had 2854.9MB/s, Crucial P5 Plus 1TB came in at 2018.0MB/s, WD_BLACK SN770 NVMe SSD 1TB scored 1317.5MB/s, Lexar NM710 1TB posted 1918.6MB/s, Netac NV7000-t 1TB showed 2048.4MB/s, and the Corsair MP600 Core XT 2TB posted an average of 2750.3MB/s. At the end of the day, HD Tune may not be the best test for solid state drives all the time, but these results are always interesting to look at.
