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.

Read access time is the first thing you notice when moving from a mechanical HDD to an SSD.

Write access is a little higher with drives based on SandForce architecture because SandForce does not use an external DRAM buffer to fluff the results. The writes go straight to the flash processor unit where the data is compressed if possible and stored on the flash. With TRIM in place the writes take place much faster since the drive doesn't need to do a full read, erase and write cycle in most cases.
