Just like the Consistency test, PCMark 8’s standard Storage test also saves a large amount of performance data. The default test runs through the test suite of 10 applications three times. Here we show the total bandwidth performance for each of the individual test suites for the third and final benchmark run.
The drive takes the Adobe Photoshop Light tests in its stride with a total bandwidth for the test of 974.51MB/s. Its a different story with the much more demanding Photoshop Heavy test. The drive really struggles through the test resulting in a bandwidth of just 252.9MB/s.
