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.

Those new to SSDs might think that the massive improvement to transfer speeds is what makes SSDs so fast, but it's the access times that give you the feeling of speed. Platter drives have to wait for the moving parts to move to position, but SSDs can access data much faster since they have direct access to the data.

 

The MyDigitalSSD we are looking at today can read data in .09ms. A typical platter drive running 5,400 RPM platters takes around 20ms to read the same block of data.

The write access time for the MyDigitalSSD was a little bumpy due to the cache buffer, but the drive still performed with an average time of 1.21ms.
