Test results: HD Tune Read
We use HD Tune’s standard sequential read- and write tests along with an access time test. When performing a sequential read- or write test the entire disk surface will be processed from start to finish. The results of the read tests can be found below.
The speeds differ only a little in the HD Tune Read-test. Unfortunately the IronWolf Pro is found at the bottom of the graph. With a throughput speed of 186.6 MB/s it is 10 MB/s slower than the golden WD drive. The access time of the Seagate on the other hand is excellent. With only 12 ms it performs a lot better than the regular IronWolf which clocks 15.2 ms.
