Windows 7: Show us your hard drive performance

On all the HD Tune results, all SSDs show an access time of 0.1 ms. But I suspect the acces time is actually lower than that. HD Tune may only show one position after the comma and is therefore rounding everything to 0.1. I read that the access time on SSDs is typically 0.04 ms.

Mine came back at 0.0...but I agree almost everything else that i have seen does indeed say 0.1.

Now 0.0 is not correct either - how can it be. I think they are playing with the rounding.

Maybe I've got this wrong but wouldn't this be 1 MS "1.0" and this should be 1/10 of a ms "0.1"


Just curious!

Yes, the 0.1 on the chart is one tenth of a millisecond. But on pparks test it is 0.0 - which, of course, is wrong. There must be some time spent in the Access Time. If they showed 2 digits behind the comma, we would know better.

OK, I re-read what you first wrote, I see what you were saying.

To me this is good. Sorry not HD TUNE, ATTO is free.


HD Tune was a trial offer, they usually turn off after 30 days. Chose not to bother. Is HD Tune better? or just prettier?
I have as yet "NOT DONE" Tony Trim, maybe I will see that 625/725 speed that was posted if I do?

HD Tune is free too. Sorry, but I do not understand the 600MB/sec transfer rate. That would be an unbelievable speed. Even an SSD is only around 200MB/sec and an SSD Raid0 may do 350MB/sec max.

Looks like he's running three Vertex units in RAID0. Numbers like his are not uncommon over on the OCZ Forums...

Can't wait to see what's possible when the new SATA 3.0 (6Gb/s) motherboards become widely available.
