Synthetic Test Results

Though our timed benchmark tests do a fair job of simulating performance in real world situations, it doesn't tell the whole story. Synthetic tests like HD Tune and CrystalDiskMark help fill the gap. Note: on SSDs, a full format was conducted before running these tests.

In HD Tune's main benchmark, the HyperX 3K 120GB was slower than competing models with noticeably slower sequential read and write speeds. Its access times were also nothing to brag about.

In CrystalDiskMark, using a block size of 512K and a random data set, the HyperX 3K 120GB once again performed very similarly to the Intel 520 and ADATA SX910 drives. The Samsung 830 and larger SandForce models had far superior write speeds. It didn't fare any better when switching to the smaller 4K block size.
