Total Access Time - All Tests

 

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

Latency is one of, if not the most important of all aspects for consumers to look for when choosing a consumer SSD, right after reliability.

 

Total Access Time - Heavy Load

Here we see the 850 EVO with a high amount of latency (not a good thing) under the heavy use model, but quickly recovering under typical consumer use.

With RAPID Mode enabled, the 850 EVO does exceptionally well with latency; this is the best we've ever tested under typical consumer workload conditions.
