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.
Over the last year we've seen several drives hit the market with very low latency (and high IOPS performance) and the Neutron Series drives fit into this category. With a read access time of just .05ms for the Neutron GTX and .04ms for the non-GTX, these Neutron drives are fighting it out with the Plextor M3 Pro we tested a couple of months back with some of the lowest read latency we've seen.
The write latency is also very good, just .04ms.
