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.
While the drive struggled with the PCM8 Consistency test, it dealt with the standard PCMark8 very well, particularly the two Photoshop tests with bandwidths of 1,146.51MB/s for Photoshop Light and 1,046.33MB/s for Photoshop Heavy. Although the After Effects test is the slowest, as it usually is, its bandwidth result for the third and final run is still above 400MB/s which is very good.
