HD Tune Pro is a great program that covers all areas of our testing and does a great job of showing how capable this drive truly is. Please note that this is the trial version of the software.
As you can see above, the read speed comes in with a maximum speed of 114 MB/s, averaging out at around 90 MB/s.
Using the file benchmark option in HD Tune Pro, we can see a little more into the drive as the sequential read speed comes in 112 MB/s and the sequential write speed comes in at 105 MB/s.
QUICKBENCH VER. 4.0
QuickBench is another benchmark tool used to measure the transfer speeds and performance of storage devices. QuickBench is a good tool for confirming the previously produced read and write speeds seen above.
QuickBench is a great piece of software to run every now and again because it often throws some data at you that you may not have been expecting, which in this case it did. We can see that using QuickBench the ADATA HD720 averaged 163 MB/s for write speeds, much higher than what we have seen so far. Unfortunately, we also see at detriment to this drive when looking at the read speed average of 82 MB/s.
BLACK MAGIC SPEED TEST (MAC)
Why not throw this drive over on an Apple iMac, just to see what else the ADATA HD720 is capable of? BlackMagic Design’s Speed Test is a great tool available for free in the Mac App Store. This very easy to use utility can help you identify the throughput of your Mac storage device.
BlackMagic Speed Test shows us that the ADATA HD720 is capable of write speeds up to 109 MB/s and read speeds of up to 102 MB/s, much like what we have seen already.
