HD Tune Benchmarks

EFD Software's HD Tune is described on the company's web site as such: "HD Tune is a hard disk utility with many functions. It can be used to measure the drive's performance, scan for errors, check the health status (S.M.A.R.T.), securely erase all data and much more." The latest version of the benchmark added temperature statistics and improved support for SSDs, among a few other updates and fixes.

HD Tune did not like the Intel SSD 730 RAID 0 configuration, which put up some abysmal numbers here. The single drive setup, however, was competitive in read performance throughout and put up the best access times. In the write tests though, the Intel SSD 730 offered middling performance here.
