AIDA64 Random Access Time

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 M5 Pro 256GB has the lowest read access time we've tested to date. The OCZ Vertex 4 matched the M5 Pro until OCZ started tweaking the firmware.

The same .04 average access time applies to the write latency too which matches several of Plextor's other Toshiba Toggle Mode flash equipped drives.
