AIDA64 offers 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.


Drives with only one or two tests displayed in the write test mean that they have failed the test and their Maximum and possibly their Average Scores were very high after the cached fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron and Toshiba.




No matter what SSD you buy, it will feel faster than your spinner drive since it doesn't have mechanical latency. SSDs can read data in an instant; well, not exactly an instant. The Patriot Torqx 2 reads data at an average rate of .36 milliseconds.




To date, controllers designed for the mainstream market have been horrible at writing small bits of data in rapid succession. Some of these products have been so bad we didn't even score them on the charts. The problem is that the DRAM cache fills quickly and then the data has to be written directly to the controller and the controller was so slow that we'd start to get writes that took as much as 5 seconds to complete.


5 seconds! In the world of computers, 5 seconds is a very long time. You can pull out like 3.5 hand full's of hair in 5 seconds.

The new Phison controller in the Torqx 2 will save your hair and deliver writes faster than the world's fastest consumer spinner, the WD VelociRaptor.
