Corsair Force MP500 480GB SSD Review

PCMark 8’s Consistency test provides a huge amount of performance data, so here we’ve looked a little closer at how the MP500 performs in each of the benchmarks test suites.

Adobe Creative Cloud

PCMark8’s Photoshop Heavy test really does push the drive hard with the bandwidth dropping from 1036MB/s at the start of the Degradation test section to just 159MB/s towards the end of the section and around 200MB/s during the Steady State phase. The drive recovers extremely well from the ordeal, reaching 1040MB/s during the recovery cycle.

Microsoft Office

In the Microsoft Office suite, it’s the Word tests that stress’s the drive but nowhere near as hard as the Photoshop Heavy test. Once again the drive shows superb recovery from the Degrade and Steady State tests.

Casual Gaming

The MP500 makes light work of the Casual Gaming test, the only time it really misses a beat is during the Steady State 3 test run of Battlefield 3.
