Patriot Viper VPR100 RGB 1TB 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 Patriot Viper VPR100 performs in each of the benchmarks test suites.

Adobe Creative Cloud

The drive’s performance during the Adobe CC test phase does suffer somewhat. Both the Photoshop Light and Heavy tests along with the Indesign trace show pretty large dips in bandwidth, and while the two Photoshop tests show fairly good – if inconsistent – performance during the Recovery phases, the Indesign trace’s performance trails off the longer the Recovery phase goes on.

Microsoft Office

As is quite often the case in the MS Office part of PCMark 8’s Consistency Test, it’s the Word trace that has problems. At the eighth Degradation phase and the second Steady State stage, there are real drops in bandwidth, along with associated peaks in the latency, although the drive does recover well on both occasions. The PowerPoint trace suffers a similar drop in the second Degradation phase.

Casual Gaming

The one thing that stands out in the Casual Gaming tests is the huge leap in performance from the last SteadyState phase to the first Recovery run for both traces. The World Of Warcraft trace hardly misses a beat through the testing phase but it is operating at a much lower bandwidth than the Battlefield 3 trace.
