HD Tune Pro 3.50 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 Seagate Momentus 7200.2 200GB Notebook hard drive did roughly the same in HD Tune, which means our benchmark numbers should be fairly accurate. The average read speed was 51.4MBps and the average write speed was found to be 48.5MBps. The access time averaged between 15.2 to 15.8 ms with the a burst speed of 78 to 105 MBps. The CPU utilization was the same on both benchmarks; 0.8%.
64MB File Test
Benchmark Results: Running the built-in file benchmark test in HD Tune showed once again just how the drive performance with various file sizes.
