PCMark 7 - System Storage

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.

PCMark 7 testing definitely writes enough data to fall outside of our mSATA EVO array's accelerated write layer for a good portion of the test. Our mSATA EVO array delivers a good performance, but nothing like what our larger 500GB based EVO array can deliver.


The 500GB EVO has a larger capacity Turbo Write layer, as well as better base write performance, which is the reason for the fairly large performance gap between the two arrays.
