PCMark 7 - System Storage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.4.00

PCMark 7 includes seven 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.

 

OS Volume 75% full - Lightly Used

Performance increases as drives are added to the array. The most significant performance increase is of course the jump from a single drive to a two drive array. There is a notable increase in performance from a two to a three drive array as well. Performance only slightly increases with arrays of four to six SSDs.
