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..

The 840 Pro has a little lower read latency when compared to the standard 840. Vector is a little better here, but only by a small amount.

Vector has better write latency as well and the 840 Pro has half the write latency of the standard 840 with TLC NAND.
