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 MSI A75MA-G55 was able to average 272.0MB/s read rates and 195.8MB/s average write rates. The Average Read rate was 6.9MB/s behind the ASUS F1A75-M Pro and the Average Write was spot on with the ASUS F1A75-M Pro.
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 Results: Typically HD Tach and HD Tune tell a very similar story in terms of performance numbers. This time however, our numbers are a little bit different. The Average Read of the MSI A75MA-G55 was an impressive 334.9MB/s and the Average Write was 224.5MB/s. this was enough to take the top spots.
