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 Kingston FURY Renegade 1TB'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 FURY Renegade 1TB posted an average of 2794.9MB/s for its sequential read speed, which is comparable to other performance PCIe 4.0-based drives. For reference, my previous FURY Renegade 1TB test had it at 2811.8MB/s, so we are well within the margin of error. The Kingston KC3000 1TB came in at 2581.8MB/s, WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD 1TB scored 2366.0MB/s, and the Legend 960 1TB posted an average of 2391.7MB/s. Again, we can see a marked improvement thanks to the firmware optimizations compared to the KC3000 1TB. The Lexar Professional NM800 PRO 2TB's 3065.7MB/s result is impressive, but it is a different capacity class. 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.
