Corsair Neutron Series GTX 480GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - AIDA64 Random Access Time

Corsair's lock on Link_A_Media Device's controller is holding. We've seen the 240GB capacity sizes of the Neutron and Neutron GTX, and now we get our turn with the massive 480GB drive.

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.

Manufacturers like to talk about their big number sequential performance, but the most noticeable performance increase over a spinner (HDD) is how fast actions happen. Read latency is the measurement used to quantify these actions. The Corsair Neutron GTX scored very well in this test with a solid .05 ms rating.

For desktop and notebook use, the write latency takes a back seat to read latency, but if your write latency increases too high, you experience studdering. The Corsair Neutron Series GTX 480GB keeps write latency down to less than half a millisecond, no studder issue there.
