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 cache fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron and Toshiba.
The read access times are lower than the SandForce based drives, but not as low as the Marvell drives. The lower the access times the faster the drive feels when you bounce between windows and open programs.
The write access times are in line with the SandForce based drives, but this is something we expected to see since the random 4K IOPS are very close to SandForce's claimed performance.
