PCMark 7 - System Storage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.4.00

PCMark 7 includes 7 PC tests for Windows 7 & 8, combining more than 25 individual workloads covering storage, computation, image and video manipulation, web browsing and gaming. Specifically designed to cover the full range of PC hardware from netbooks and tablets to notebooks and desktops, PCMark 7 offers complete PC performance testing for Windows 7 & 8 for home and business use.

 

We will look to the Raw system storage scoring for RAID 0 evaluations because it's done without system stops and therefore allows us to see significant scoring differences between drives/arrays.

A 3 drive array has nearly double the performance of a single drive when analyzing PCMark 7's Raw system Storage score. Like PCMark Vantage testing showed, there's not a whole lot of difference between a 2 drive and 3 drive array performance wise, but there is a huge difference between a single drive and an array.
