HD Tune v3.50 - Random Access
When HD Tune Pro 3.50 was released in December 2008 it included a brand new Random Access test. The random access read and write test is a very important performance area to look at on solid state drives as some controllers have problems with random writes.
Random Access Read Test Results:
Benchmark Results: When it comes to the random access read performance test the Kingston SSDNow V Series 40GB Boot Drive does great with the Intel controller and 32MB of cache.
Random Access Write Test Results:
Benchmark Results: The write performance test results of the Kingston SSDNow V Series 40GB Boot Drive was impressive up to a transfer size of 4KB. The Kingston SSDNow V Series 40GB Boot Drive was the fastest drive we have ever seen on the 4KB file size, but then performance nose dived on the larger file sized. The average access time ranged from 0.05ms to 23ms as you can see from the benchmark results above.
4KB Random Write File Test Results Chart:
Benchmark Results: Many of our readers have asked for a chart showing side-by-side comparisons of the drives we have tested in the 4KB random access write test. You can see from this chart that the Kingston SSDNow V Series 40GB Boot Drive is the fastest SSD we have ever tested and it also happens to be the lowest price tested. Amazing!
