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.

The access time is where things get a little interesting. Since most users don't transfer large, incompressible files often, they could really care less about spending more money on a drive that has features that are rarely used. Here we see that both the async and sync OWC drives give nearly the same read access times, the biggest performance increase over a traditional platter drive.

The write access time between these two drives is also nearly identical.
