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.
Drives with only one or two tests displayed in write the write test mean that they have failed the test and their Maximum and possibly their Average Scores were very high after the cached fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron.
The cacheless SandForce drives have a little higher access time when compared to the Indilinx Barefoot drives on the charts, but we are measuring in ten thousandths of a second here. In the driver comparison there doesn't appear to be much of a difference and the A-DATA S599 is performing as expected.
The write access test shows that the A-DATA S599 100GB drive is able to outperform the latest firmware Indilinx Barefoot drives and the Crucial C300. The driver test between the two SF-1200 drives show no significant difference.
