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.
Access times are what gives solid state technology such a high performance advantage over traditional platter drives. Without the need to move a physical platter into position to be read, SSDs are able to read and write data much faster.
In the read test we see the S599 keeping pace with the Vertex 2 120GB drive and the numbers are nearly identical.
The write speed numbers once again show the S599 and Vertex 2 120GB putting identical access numbers.
