HD Tune is a benchmark able to show the sequential read speed across the entire capacity range. Mechanical drives get slower as the data is being moved towards the edge of the platters, in this test they start with their maximum sequential read speed and end with the minimum. This is not the case for SSD drives however as they have no rotating platters or other moving parts therefore they can sustain maximum speed across the entire data range.

The OCZ Vertex series once again shows signs of considerably improved performance over the previous Apex series. Slower MLC drives featuring a single JMF602 controller wouldn’t stand a chance against the Vertex, most likely not even if two of them are put together in a RAID 0 configuration. The access times of the Vertex SSD are many times faster than any of the mechanical drives. Below you can see screenshots of the random access read/write test of the Vertex and the read test of the fastest mechanical drive, the Seagate 7200.11.
