MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 256GB mSATA Solid State Drive Review - Benchmarks - AIDA64 Random Access Time

MyDigitalSSD is back again for the second time recently with the new BP3 mSATA 256GB. BulletProof is about speed, reliability and value all wrapped up into one product.

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.

Access time is easily the nicest feature on solid state drives and it greatly improves the user experience over standard mechanical drives. The read access for the MDSSD BP3 is a solid .05ms and that performance holds steady across the range of the drive.

The read access is really good, but the write access could use a lot of help. The original Bullet Proof is listed on the chart and as you can see the BP3 follows the same path on the chart. With an average write latency of just over 1ms, the BP3 isn't a stand out performer in this test. The latency isn't high enough to cause shuddering problems, but it isn't low enough to compete with some of the best mSATA drives on the market that use SandForce controllers.
