HD Tach v22.214.171.124 & CrystalDiskMark v3.0
HD Tach is a low level hardware benchmark for random access read/write storage devices such as hard drives, removable drives (ZIP/JAZZ), flash devices, and RAID arrays. HD Tach uses custom device drivers and other low level Windows interfaces to bypass as many layers of software as possible and get as close to the physical performance of the device as possible.
Benchmark Results: Again a benchmark that shows the Kingston V Series 30GB boot drive can have its moments of performance exceeding the specifications. Both read and write scores were above expectations. Random access time and CPU utilization are right on par with expectations.
CrystalDiskMark is a small HDD benchmark utility for your hard drive
that enables you to rapidly measure sequential and random read/write
speeds. This newest version is still in beta.
Benchmark Results: Sequential writes here are dead on and reads are a little higher than spec but we see the writes really struggle in the other benchmark metrics. Again, different test bench system but you can see results from other SSD's we have tested for comparison.
