HD Tune v4.01
HD Tune Pro 4.01 is an extended version of HD Tune which includes many new features such as write benchmark, secure erasing, AAM setting, folder usage view, disk monitor, command line parameters and file benchmark.
Benchmark Results: The OCZ Vertex 2 Pro 100GB SSD has solid performance numbers in HD Tune Pro 4.01 in both the read test and the write test. This is the first time that we have run HD Tune Pro 4.01 and as you can see the application has been updated and some new tests have been added. The average read speed was found to be 233MB/s with an average write speed of 203MB/s. The read test had an access time of 0.0ms, while the write test was 0.1ms.
Comparison Chart: When comparing the OCZ Vertex 2 Pro 100GB SSD with the SandForce 1500 controller to the other Intel 34nm drive we found that the Intel drive has better read speeds and access times. The OCZ Vertex 2 Pro has better write speeds and a higher burst rate.
64MB File Test
Benchmark Results: Running the built-in file benchmark test in HD Tune 4.01 showed once again just how the drive performs with various file sizes. This test shows the OCZ Vertex 2 Pro SSD topping out at nearly 280MB/sec in the read test and 225MB/sec in the write test. These are the highest numbers that we have ever seen in the file benchmark test!
