Crucial M500 960GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - AIDA64 Random Access Time

Crucial M500 960GB SSD Review
The Tera-Era has begun! Crucial leverages its 20nm NAND flash to achieve a major milestone, the first consumer 2.5" SSD to reach 1TB. Since parent company Micron owns the flash fab, the price is much better than you might expect.

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 960GB M500 has a lot of data to keep track of, but the 8GB page table DRAM buffer seems to keep the latency low. The average read latency came in at just .03ms, less than half of what we measured the Crucial m4 512GB drive at.

The write latency was .04ms, .20ms lower than the m4 512GB. The M500 is a big step for Crucial in the latency department.
