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..




The Toshiba THNSNF has higher read latency when compared to other drives with technology from Marvell, like the Plextor M3 Pro. Purpose built OEM drives just need to outperform mechanical spinners and the THNSNF tackles that objective easily.




This is where a DRAM buffer would really help THNSNF, with write access times. The average write latency is in line with other DRAM-less designs, but much higher than newer drives with Marvell technology.
