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 cached fills. This usually happens only with controllers manufactured by JMicron and Toshiba.

This is the area where most users find the biggest difference when moving from a traditional platter drive to a solid state drive. Marketing companies like to talk about big numbers and there isn't really that much glamorous when talking about a number measured in thousandths.

The Strontium Gamma has very good read access times so your programs will open very quickly and in many cases before your mouse can even finish the double click stroke.

The write access time is in line with what we've seen with SF-1200 controllers for a couple of years now, so everything is good in this area.
