Phison E7 NVMe PCIe FW 2.1 SSD Performance Preview

By: Jon Coulter | SSDs in Storage | Posted: 1 week, 5 days ago

Jon's Consumer SSD Review Test System Specifications

 

 

We would like to thank ASRock, Crucial, Intel, Corsair, RamCity, IN WIN, and Seasonic for making our test system possible.

 

 

The majority of our testing is performed with our test drive as our boot volume. Our boot volume is 75% full for all OS Disk "C" drive testing to replicate a typical consumer OS volume implementation. We feel that most of you will be utilizing your SSDs for your boot volume and that presenting you with results from an OS volume is more relevant than presenting you with empty secondary volume results.

 

System settings: Cstates and Speed stepping are both disabled in our systems BIOS. Windows High-Performance power plan is enabled. Windows write caching is enabled, and Windows buffer flushing is disabled. We are utilizing Windows 10 Pro 64-bit OS for all of our testing except for our MOP (Maxed-Out Performance) benchmarks where we switch to Windows Server 2012 R2 64-bit.

 

 

Boot Speed

 

 

The E7 delivers as good of an SSD experience as there is. In terms of snappiness, boot speed, and all-around user experience, you cannot tell the difference between an E7 on FW 2.1, a 950 Pro, or an RD400. It is that good.
