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.

Please note that we do NOT have write performance scores for the Intel SSD DC P3608 here because HD Tune requires un-formatted drives to perform its write test, and to achieve optimal performance the P3608 must be configured with a software RAID 0 configuration, which requires partitioning / formatting.

The Micron 9100 MAX trails the Intel drives with HD Tune's workloads. Burst rates are good, and CPU utilization is vastly improved with the Micron driver, but sequential reads and writes trail the Intel drives. Access times were high according to HD Tune as well, though that wasn't the case in IOMeter or SANDRA.
