HD TUNE PRO
HD Tune Pro 5.00 has a variety of benchmarking tools. While many are useful mostly for mechanical HDDs, it possesses some great benchmarks for SSDs, too. The main benchmark graphs latency (in milliseconds) and throughput (MB/s) over every physical area on a drive. If this were a HDD, youd see the latency and throughput drop as the read or write speed gets tested from the beginning of the drive to the last. The bottom represents capacity.
HDDs rotate, so the outer edges cover more area than the inner edge which leads to performance stair-stepping down. With SSDs, no such limitation exists, but there are variations in read and write performance from the first GBs to the last.
We’re testing with a larger-than-default block size (1MB) in HDTune, and it serves to show that the Proteus Plus would excel in sequential workloads, especially when the transfer size trends larger. The Proteus would excel in video recording tasks, that is, if your video recording happens to be taking place in a less than gentle environment.
