HDD Benchmarks: HD Tach

HD Tach V3.0.4 Source: TCD Labs Inc.

HD Tach is a physical performance hard drive test for Windows 95/98/ME and Windows NT/2000. In Windows 9X/ME it uses a special kernel mode VXD to get maximum accuracy by bypassing the file system. A similar mechanism is used in Windows NT/2000/XP. HD Tach reads from areas all over the hard drive and reports an average speed. It also logs the read speeds to a text file that you can load into a spreadsheet and graph to visually read the results of the test.

HDTach tests burst speed, a measure of how fast the system can transfer information from the hard disk to RAM. Thanks to the 64MB of onboard cache, the 2TB Seagate Barracuda XT HDD achieves a burst speed of 336.4 MB/s - very good for a four platter / eight head mechanical drive. The average read is measured at 115.5MB/s.
