Cold-cache Sequential I/O Benchmark Alternatives

    Cold-cache Sequential I/O Benchmark is described as 'CCSIO Benchmark measures maximum sequential read/write speed that is realistically achievable for a given file system location, including local drives, remote network shares, virtual/pseudo devices such as RAM disks and encrypted file containers'. There are more than 10 alternatives to Cold-cache Sequential I/O Benchmark for Windows, Linux, Mac, BSD and Online / Web-based. The best alternative is HD Tune, which is free. Other great apps like Cold-cache Sequential I/O Benchmark are UserBenchMark (Free), AS SSD Benchmark (Free), fio (Free, Open Source) and PassMark DiskCheckup (Free Personal).
