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 BG4 shows strong performance for all of the applications in PCMark 8’s Standard Storage test, but the two Adobe Photoshop traces do particularly well.
The total test bandwidth figure for the drive of 713.72MB/s is very good. If you take the two Intel Optane drives out of the picture, the BG4 sits in second place behind Samsung’s mighty SSD970 PRO.
