Get the read and write speed from your harddisks, cdrom devices and network servers in Kilobyte, Megabyte or even Gigabyte per Second. Compare your drive with others on the Benchmark page.
There are three different modes, from easy to advanded.
Single click speed test using the filesystem. This test shows you the sequential read & write access speed and the random access speed using 4KB blocks and 32 concurrent threads. You can select multiple drives, these will be tested one after the other and the results will be written to a log file. So you can easily compare multiple drives.
You can compare and submit your test results on the Benchmark
The test data is read from / written into a normal file using the filesystem.
The test data is read from / written onto the disk sectors directly without using the filesystem. A graph shows the transfer rate over time.
This utility is designed to identify current Intel® Processors and technologies, and enables you to run and save a processor ID report. The utility also features a frequency test to make sure that the processor is working at the rated speed.
The Intel® Processor Identification Utility video walks you through how to download and install the application. It also provides an overview of the most common technologies supported by the processor.

Great software for testing Hard disks:
AIDA64 is a system information, diagnostics, and auditing program that runs on Microsoft Windows operating systems. It displays detailed information on the components of a computer. Information can be saved to file in formats such as HTML, CSV, or XML (From Wikipedia).
HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors :
- CPU temperature, voltage, power consumption and utilization.
- Mainboard voltages, temperatures, fans speed.
- GPU voltage, temperature, utilization.
- HDD temperature.
