We tested HD Tach with the benchmark's full variable zone size setting.
No wonder the IDE Flash drive faltered in FC-Test; it's sequential transfer rates are incredibly slow. The drive doesn't even manage to push 14 MB/s when reading, and write performance is closer to 6 MB/s.
Burst performance is poor, as well, with the IDE Flash drive barely eclipsing 14 MB/s.
However, the tables turn when we look at random access times. Here, the IDE Flash drive is faster than the competition by more than an order of magnitude.
CPU utilization scores are well within HD Tach's +/- 2% margin for error in this test.
