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.




One of the most important specifications for SSDs is the access time, shown here as latency. The Crucial m4 256GB mSATA hovers right around .07ms at 64k. This is almost as fast as the best mSATA units we've tested to date.




The write access time is a little higher on the mSATA version of the m4. We didn't expect to see this since the 2.5" m4 has about half the write latency as the mSATA model.
