Kingston UV500 960GB 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 960GB Kingston UV500  performs in each of the benchmarks test suites.

Adobe Creative Cloud



The drive doesn’t show much stability throughout the first two parts of the test with some very low bandwidth figures and the corresponding high latency figures. However, the performance improves through the recovery phases albeit not very smoothly.

Microsoft Office





It’s the Word test trace in the MS Office suite of tests that causes the most problems for the drive, with the bandwidth falling off a cliff in the fifth Degradation run. In all three traces the drive recovers well.

Casual Gaming





During both game traces, the drive doesn’t handle the Degradation and Steady State phases very well at all. However the recovery phases for both is very good.
