OCZ Technology Agility 3 SandForce 240GB SATA 6G SSD Review
HD Tach will test the sequential read, random access and interface burst speeds of your attached storage device (hard drive, flash drive, removable drive, etc). All drive technologies such as SCSI, IDE/ATA, 1394, USB, SATA and RAID are supported. Test results from HD Tach can be used to confirm manufacturer specs, analyze your system for proper performance, and compare your performance with others. HD Tach is very easy to use, quick, and presents data in easy to read graphs, including the ability to compare two storage devices on screen at the same time for easy analysis.
We've learned burst tests are not conclusive with HDTach, and are only included for your information.
While HDTach is dated and does not show full throughput of faster SSD's, the Async transfers of the Agility 3 appear to mesh better with that particular benchmark.
