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.

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. Unfortunately, HD Tune does not generate any fancy independent graph outputs in particular, so I just took a screenshot of the program. The Lexar Professional NM800 PRO 2TB provided an average sequential read speed of 3065.7MB/s, which is again quite fast. For comparison, the ADATA Legend 960 1TB had an average of 2391.7MB/s, while the Kingston FURY Renegade 1TB posted a 2811.8MB/s. Our other drive with the same controller, the XPG Gammix S70 Blade 1TB, also performed worse with an average of 2662.4MB/s. Otherwise, the throughput graph was relatively flat overall, which indicates its consistent behavior. The access time was also the same as what was measured in our AIDA64 benchmark, which is good to see. 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.
