HDTach 3.0.4.0

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.

Bursts are provided only for your review. SSD's don't cache the same way HDD's do (in many cases they don't cache reads at all), so burst testing typically results in figures that are lower than the sequential throughput figures.

HDTach feeds the tested drive a continuous string of small sequential read requests. This is a single threaded operation, which means the SSD doesn't get to see what's coming next. The lower the QD=1 latency of the controller pipeline, the better the numbers we see from this test. It doesn't equate to real-world maximum throughput, but it does mean something for analysis, which is why we include these results.

I want one.  Or two.  Set me up, Allyn.  I promise that I will make it worth your while in Vegas at CES.

Seems pretty awesome, I wonder how the 128GB version performs compared to the 128GB vertex 4 (was planning on getting vertex 4 before I saw this)

From what I've seen of the specs, they should be pretty close. I've requested the smaller capacity for further evaluation towards this end.

Any idea if the Arm Core is based on the A15?
