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.




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 any SandForce drive that deploys stock firmware and ONFI 2 NAND, the sequential read and write performance of the HyperX 3K 240GB is very good. Also as expected, the difference between the 3K and the original HyperX is negligible. The HyperX 3K 240GB may not be as fast as an Intel 520 240GB or OCZ Vertex 4, but it is still a very good mid-tier performer.
