HD Tune Pro 4.6

HD Tune is one of the most popular and widely-used benchmarking tools for measuring the performance of storage drives. Here, the Kingmax SMP35 Client was actually a pretty strong performer. Despite the lower than expected minimum readings, read and write performance was generally very solid with average speeds easily capable of matching the current crop of high-end consumer SSDs. Random read and write IOPS and random read and write access times were very competitive too.
