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.

As we’ve seen so far, the OCZ Vertex 450 is a formidable drive in most of our tests, and indeed the trend continues here as the SSD beats the field in the average transfer rate and burst rate tests. It also had the second-best access time, bowing only to the Vertex 4.

The SandForce-powered Vertex 3.20 didn't fare quite as well and offered middling performance in this group of tests.
