Read Bandwidth


For this benchmark, HDTach was used. It shows the potential read speed which you are likely to experience with these hard drives. The long test was run to give a slightly more accurate picture. We donít put much stock in Burst speed readings and thus we no longer included it. The most important number is the Average Speed number. This number will tell you what to expect from a given drive in normal, day to day operations. The higher the average the faster your entire system will seem.


Much like previous ONFi 2 based SF2281 drives, the Patriot Pyro SE provides sequential read performance which is blazing fast.


Write Performance


For this benchmark HD Tune Pro was used. To run the write benchmark on a drive, you must first remove all partitions from that drive and then and only then will it allow you to run this test. Unlike some other benchmarking utilities the HD Tune Pro writes across the full area of the drive, thus it easily shows any weakness a drive may have.


As with the sequential read performance, the average write performance of the Patriot Pyro SE is right where you would expect it to be. It may lag behind high performance drives such as the Vertex 4 and Intel 520, but considering the price disparity between those truly enthusiast grade devices and the Pyro SE, its price to performance ratio is certainly excellent.
