Total Access Time

 

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.

Experience doesn't come from throughput though, it comes from latency. Again, we see the same test, but this time in terms of access time or latency. Under heavy use, the HyperX 3K stays about the same as it does under light use, but many of the low cost SSDs suffer from large increases in latency in comparison to the light workload tests.

 

Typical Consumer Latency

Here we see the light workload, consumer slice. The HyperX 3K has more latency here than most of the other drives on the chart.
