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.

The OCZ Octane's CPU utilization and access times are right in-line with competitive offerings, although its access times during writes are much better than the SandForce-based drives. Burst rates are somewhat low, however. Like we saw in the ATTO tests, sequential reads are on-par with the other drives, but writes trail the SandForce and Samsung drives.
