AIDA64 Random Access Time

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 cached fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron and Toshiba.

Access times are what give the user the feel and good experience found only with SSDs. When a drive is able to access data at speeds measured in microseconds, everything opens much quicker. This gives the impression of an instant action when a command is called upon. A lot of hype goes into maximum read and write speeds, but the access time is what users feel the most with SSDs. OWC was able to deliver an average read access time of .19 ms; you will feel a large improvement over a traditional platter drive at that speed.

The write access times were identical to the read access times with an average write of .19 ms and a maximum of only .2.
