Total Access Time

 

The access time test measures the total latency across all 18 tests. This is one of, if not the most important test we run at this time for consumer SSDs. When your latency is low your computer feels fast, it's just that simple.

In the Access Time results we see the XP941 512GB and 256GB dominating the chart, followed by the OCZ RevoDrive 350 480GB and Comay BladeDrive 480GB. The XP941 calls in just after in many of the states, but is still significantly better than ASUS's RAIDr and Plextor's M6e.

 

Disk Busy Time

 

In the final test, we measure the amount of time the drive worked to read and write the data to complete the test. When a drive is active, it uses more power so the faster it can complete the tasks the faster it can fall into a low power state.

The Disk Busy Time results are nearly identical to the Response Time results. The XP941 128GB needs a bit more time to complete the tasks.
