AIDA64 Random Access Time

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.




I really can't stress this point enough - access time is what makes an SSD feel fast. On the chart we've included the 10,000 RPM WD VelociRaptor, the lowest access time offered in a mechanical platter drive. The read access time difference between it and any SSD on our chart is massive. Even if your SSD could transfer only 100MB/s, it would still feel faster than any mechanical drive because of the lower latency from the SSD.




The Vertex LE has good read and write access time, performance you can feel and the reason why SSDs are superior to mechanical drives.
