Everest Random Access Time
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.
Our Seagate 15K RPM 15K.7 drives really do a good job of keeping the latency low with both controllers.
In RAID 5 the 1680X had a couple of small blips on the graph and it really hurt its average score.
Let's see how all of these synthetic benchmarks relate to real world applications.
