PCMark 8’s Consistency test provides a huge amount of performance data, so here we’ve looked a little closer at how the 1TB Force MP600 performs in each of the benchmarks test suites.
The two Adobe Photoshop test traces really push a drive hard and the Force MP600 is no exception. The drive does, however, recover well with an average across the five recovery runs of 915.18MB/s for the Photoshop Light trace and 909.17MB/s for the Photoshop heavy one.
Usually in the Microsoft Office tests, it’s the Word trace that causes problems for a drive but not in this case, as the Force MP600 handles that test extremely well. No, what causes this drive to drop bandwidth is the Excel trace. There are fairly sharp drops in the second and eighth Degradation test run and the fifth and final Steady State run. However, the drive does recover reasonably well.
