Everest Ultimate and Corporate Edition offer 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.
Access time is a where solid state drives excel and here Intel's X25-M drive was able to outperform every other drive in our test.
Write Access Latency was a little different; the Intel MLC drive was a little slower than the other MLC drives, but is still much faster than the platter based drives.
Let's see how all of these synthetic benchmarks relate to real world applications.
