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.

After giving the Western Digital Blue SN570 NVMe SSD 1TB a clean format and ensuring alignment and everything is correct, I fired it up for some testing in HD Tune. HD Tune is more of a drag race than a clear indication of real-life performance. That said, it is an excellent storage performance reference among SSDs with the same controller, and has been our favorite benchmark long before hard drives even cracked the 50MB/s mark. Unfortunately, HD Tune does not generate any fancy independent graph outputs in particular, so I just took a screenshot of the program. The Western Digital Blue SN570 NVMe SSD 1TB's throughput remained relatively flat on average, with only a slight dip in the middle. Otherwise, the recorded access time was very low, as we would expect from a solid state drive. The SN570 1TB posted an average of 1349.5MB/s for its sequential read speed, which is slower than both the SN550 and SN750 drives from Western Digital. 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.
