HD Tach Performance

Simpli Software's HD Tach is described on the company's web site as such: "HD Tach is a low level hardware benchmark for random access read/write storage devices such as hard drives, removable drives, 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 being tested."

HD Tach was rough on the new Intel SSD 320 series drive. In this test, the SSD 320 series drive trailed the Vertex 2 across the board and trailed the previous-gen X25-M in reads and burst speeds. And once again, the SATA III drivers were simply in another league.
