Everest Random Access Time
Everest Ultimate and Corporate Edition offer several different benchmarks for testing and optimizing your system or network. The Random Access test is one of very few if not only that will measure hard drives random access times in hundredths of milliseconds as oppose to tens of milliseconds.
The read access time dropped quite a bit with the 1819 release and stayed steady with the latest release.
The latest features have taken a small toll on the write access times, but the latest 1916 firmware did start to lower these on average.
Let's see how all of these synthetic benchmarks relate to real world applications.
