The disk benchmark result is a good indication of how your computer will perform. If you do not find the desktop rating scores helps you, you can run a hardware benchmark tool to get an instant result of your PC performance.

Generally speaking, a computer’s performance depends on how well it works together as a whole. But one of the most important factors to measure computer performance is to test computer speed. In this case, I recommend you to test your computer’s speed with MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition.

MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition is an all-in-one partition manager and disk benchmark program. It can help you move/resize partition, extend partition, format partition, check file system, analyze disk space, convert MBR to GPT, and measure disk performance via Disk Benchmark.

Disk Benchmark feature can help you measure disk performance using various transfer sizes and test lengths for both sequential and random read/write speeds. If you want to conduct a computer performance test with MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition, you can follow the steps below:

Step 1. Download MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition by clicking the following button. Install it and launch it to get the main interface.

  • Select a Drive: choose a target partition to start the benchmarking. Make sure the partition has a drive letter. If there is no drive letter, click here to add one.
  • Physical Disk: this shows you the disk module of the selected drive.
  • Transfer Size: the size of data transmitted at one time can range from 1KB to 2048KB. You can choose a specific transfer size range by yourself.
  • Total Length: the total amount of data to be transferred can range from 100MB to 4096MB. You can set a proper range by yourself.
  • Queue Number: queue up a bunch of asynchronous read/writes in the drive, and the drive does them as quickly as it can.
  • Tread Number: this is to set up how many threads to be used to finish the disk benchmark.
  • Test Mode: here you can choose a mode to test, which can be Sequential, Random, and Sequential & Random
  • Cool Down Time: setting up the cool down time can reduce the hard drive temperature before it continues with the next test. This makes the test result relatively accurate.

Step 3. Wait patiently when it is testing the disk. When it is finished, you will see the test results with clear and intuitive graphics.

Tip: If you test an external HDD/SSD which is connected via a USB interface, the result of the disk speed test can be affected. Under this situation, you are likely to see a 50 MB/s around speed. If the HDD test shows much different results, the HDD may be badly fragmented. In this case, you can defragment the hard drive.
