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 Patriot Supersonic Rage Prime 1TB remained very flat on average. It differed slightly in magnitude than HD Tach -- probably due to testing algorithms used -- but its performance characteristics were identical in practice. Other than that, the results were very good across the range; the recorded access time was very low. The Supersonic Rage Prime 1TB posted an average of 545.6MB/s for its sequential read speed, which is, again, measurably faster than SSDs like the Crucial X8 1TB at 327.5MB/s and LaCie Rugged SSD 1TB at 367.3MB/s. No USB flash drive even comes close. The Patriot Supersonic Rage Prime 1TB's tested latency was slightly different compared to AIDA64 and HD Tach at 0.082 ms. Do keep in mind the discussion we had on the previous page, as it still applies here.
