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..

The read latency increased with the new firmware, but the large DRAM cache for table data has always given Marvell controllers low latency performance in this test.

The write latency decreased and that helped Plextor get the M5 Pro into the 100K IOPS range.
