PCMark Vantage - Drives with Data Testing

 

For a complete breakdown on the Drives with Data Testing please read this article. You will be able to perform this test at home with the files provided in the article - full instructions are included.

 

- Brief Methodology

 

SSDs perform differently when used for a period of time and when data is already present on the drive. The purpose of the Drives with Data testing is to show how a drive performs in these 'dirty' states. SSDs also need time to recover, either with TRIM or onboard garbage collection methods.

 

Drives with Data Testing - 25%, 50%, 75% Full States and Dirty / Empty Test

Files needed for 60 (64GB), 120 (128GB), 240 (256GB)

60GB Fill - 15GB, 30GB, 45GB

120GB Fill - 30GB, 60GB, 90GB

240GB Fill - 60GB, 120GB, 160GB

Empty but Dirty - a test run just after the fill tests and shows if a drive needs time to recover or if performance is instantly restored.

Using Vantage again as a measuring stick, we fill the drives with controlled data at set capacity levels to measure how the drives perform with data populating the flash. We like using the 50% mark to analyze the results.

 

The Comay Venus Pro 3 scores just over 44K Marks in this test, which is very close to the performance of the Plextor M3 Pro.
