Whether you are looking for long battery life, or maximum power, PCMark 8 helps you find the devices that offer the perfect combination of efficiency and performance for your needs.

 

Use the PCMark 8 Storage benchmark to test the performance of SSDs, HDDs and hybrid drives with traces recorded from Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and a selection of popular games.

Our Seagate array puts up an average performance in this test. The Seagate 600 is a very good enthusiast-class SSD, but not on the same level of performance as hyper-class SSDs, like the Extreme II and EVO.
