HDTach 3.0.4.0

HDTach v3.0.4.0 


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.

For these tests I used the supplied G-Monster-V5 as well as an OCZ Colossus. In both cases we can see that while transfer speeds are plenty fast via the GBox, they are still a bit slower than the full native speed of high-end SSD's. Still, 195MB/sec is nothing to sneeze at as compared to the 30-40MB/sec you'd get with USB2.0.
