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 970 EVO Plus performs very well in the Standard PCMark 8 Storage test, with excellent bandwidth figures for both of the Adobe Photoshop tests in particular.
In PCMark 8’s Standard Storage test, the SSD970 EVO Plus produces an overall bandwidth figure of 653.2MB/s which is an improvement over the 519.13MB/s figure produced by the previous generation SSD970 EVO.
