HD Tune Pro
HD Tune Pro’s benchmark results in three scores – read average, read access time and read burst rate. Here we see that the Neutron GTX comes second in the read average behind the venerable M4, second in the access time behind the M5 Pro and third in burst rate – so a decent but not commanding performance. Read speed definitely isn’t the chief advantage of the drive against its top tier competitors, but it’s still respectable.
PCMark 7 crashed a few times during my runs with it (and only once took out the text of this review), and in amongst its overall run includes a hard disk benchmark resulting in a single storage score; a good at-a-glance indicator of comparative performance. Here we see that the M5 Pro takes home the top slot, with the Corsair Neutron GTX coming second. The two drives are definitely very close in performance.
