OCZ SSD 32GB Solid State Hard Disk
HD Tune Pro Results
HD Tune Pro
HD Tune Pro is a complete hard disk benchmarking, status and erasing utility by EFD Software
. Our testing procedure involved running both the read and write benchmark tests on both the OCZ SSD, WD Velociraptor and RaptorX drives with screen shots of the results being taken at the end of each benchmark run. The results can be seen below:
OCZ 32GB SATA-II SSD READ
Western Digital Velociraptor 300GB READ
Western Digital RaptorX 150GB READ
The difference between the OCZ (Samsung) SSD and the two mechanical Western Digital hard drives is plain to see. The blue line representing the read speed across the entire disk stays in a totally flat line around the 90MB/s mark for the SSD while the two WDC drives start off with a high read speed and slowly curve downwards as they reach the edge of the disk.
While the WDC RaptorX can just about match the speed of the OCZ SSD at the inner-portion of the disk (83MB/s) the Verlociraptor performs much better, actually beating the SSD with a maximum read spead of 123MB/s on the inner-portion of the disk, and coming within 9MB/s of the SSD right at the edge of the disk.
As expected the access times of the mechanical disks is much higher than that of the SSD with HD Tune reporting a 0.2ms access time for the SSD and 6.9ms and 8.2ms for the Velociraptor and RaptorX disks respectively. How this will translate to real-world performance is yet to be seen.
OCZ 32GB SATA-II SSD WRITE
Western Digital Velociraptor 320GB WRITE
Western Digital RaptorX 150GB WRITE
Write speed doesn't seem to be a strong point for the OCZ SSD, with HD Tune reporting an average speed of 77.5MB/s and a much more impressive 102MB/s for the Velociraptor. Once again the mechanical drives take a dip in performance as they near the edge of the platter, but the Velociraptor still manages to keep its minumum write speed well above that of the SSD.
Access time is once again a strong point for the SSD with an almost non-measurable 0.1ms result.
