AIDA64 Random Access Time

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.60

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

The read access times are some of the lowest we've scored on a SandForce based SSD to date. The numbers aren't quite a low as the Marvell controllers produce, but still very low.

One of the biggest advantages of the new SMART mSATA compared to MyDigitalSSD's Bullet Proof line is the SandForce's DRAMless system. The Phison controllers use a DRAM buffer to mask slow write to flash speeds where the SandForce SF-2281 is very fast with its own built in buffer system.
