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 possible.
The SATA6 Testing was done using Crucial RealSSD C300 256Gb SATA6 SSD drive.
Benchmark Results: The ASUS F1A75-M Pro averaged 278.9MB/s on the read and 195.9MB/s for the write tests. This is below what we saw with the ASUS P8Z68-V Pro.
