SuperSSpeed S302 Hyper Gold MLC 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - AIDA64 Random Access Time

SuperSSpeed delivered the best two prong approach to the SSD market yet. SLC flash for enthusiasts/prosumers and MLC flash for mainstream/power users. Today we look at the MLC portion and like the last couple of reviews this one has TRIM now as well.

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.

A lot of marketing goes into the really big sequential read and write performance, but rarely does a company talk about the small latency numbers. Latency is important, it's what makes your computer feel fast. If you already have a good SSD then you understand that your day to day tasks happen before your finger can even lift after a double click.

The SuperSSpeed S302 delivers exceptional read latency, but is a little down on the write latency when compared to the SSDs based on Marvell controllers. Marvell based drives use a DRAM buffer to keep write latency down.
