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.

Users will actually feel a difference in latency with PlexTurbo 2.0.

 

Total Access Time - Heavy Load

Even under heavy workloads, the latency decreases significantly as the DRAM collects the random writes and sends them to the drive as sequential data. This reduces wear on the flash, and also decreases the latency.

 

Total Access Time - Typical Consumer Load

In the consumer test, we see that latency dropped by more than half. The only bad part about the data we see from PlexTurbo 2.0 under these conditions is that even with the software, the M6e Black Edition 128GB can't deliver the low latency offered by the XP941.
