MyDigitalSSD BP3 256GB mSATA SSD Revisited - 3.2 Firmware Update - Benchmarks - AIDA64 Random Access Time

MDSSD and Phison have a new firmware ready for the S8 SATA III controller. Under normal circumstances we'd expect a small performance increase, but when the promise of a 4x increase was made, we knew we had to see for ourselves.

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 latency increased by a small amount when compared to the release firmware, but we are talking about 1 one-thousandth of a second average.

The write latency, always a difficult test for Phison controllers, decreased by a large margin, nearly halving the previous firmware's latency.
