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 100GB SSD’s average read speed was found to be 231MB/s with an average write speed of 206MB/s. The read and write tests had an access time of 0.1ms.
Comparison Chart: When comparing the OCZ Vertex 2 100GB SSD with the SandForce 1200 controller to the OCZ Vertex LE 100GB SSD with the SandForce 1500 controller the drives were virtually identical! The old OCZ Vertex 120GB SSD with firmware v1.5 did very well in
this test; as you can see it wasn’t too far behind in the tests! The Vertex 2 had the highest average write speed of any drive that we have tested! The Crucial RealSSD C300 dominated the group when it came to read performance since it uses SATA III 6Gbps.
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 SSD topping out at nearly 270MB/sec in the read test and 225MB/sec in the write test. These are some of the highest numbers that we have ever seen in the file benchmark test.
