HD Tach Testing

 

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."

OCZ Vertex 2 120GB
 


Corsair Force 120GB
 

 
Patriot Zephyr 128GB
 
The Patriot Inferno 120GB drive didn't perform quite as smoothly as the OCZ and Corsair drives in HD Tach. Transfer speeds were a notch behind the other SandForce based drives and the Patriot drive's performance spiked downward somewhat at regular intervals in both the read and write portions of the test.
