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.

16KB Stripe (Left) / 64KB Stripe (Right)

The read latency is the same between the two stripe sizes. With mechanical drives, read latency would increase slightly over a single HDD, but with SSD's, there isn't a penalty, at least not one that is measurable.

Write Access Latency

Using a smaller stripe size with an SSD does increase wear and your array will feel slower faster until the drive's internal garbage collection kicks in to clean up the flash.
