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 test we run at this time for consumer SSDs. When your latency is low your computer feels fast, it's just that simple.

Latency is not the same thing as throughput and this is where the XP941 still has a slight advantage. This is the first time we've had a test where the XP941 performed better than the new SM951.

 

Total Access Time - Heavy Load

The latency results are very close under heavy workload between the old and new Samsung PCIe M.2 SSDs.

The same holds true for the consumer workload tests.
