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 KC3000 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; the recorded access time was very low, as we would expect from a solid state drive. The KC3000 1TB posted an average of 2581.8MB/s for its sequential read speed, which is comparable to other performance PCIe 4.0-based drives. The WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD 1TB scored 2366.0MB/s and the Gammix S70 Blade 1TB posted an average of 2662.4MB/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.
