We spend a lot of time looking at performance under a microscope where half a second of time to complete a task is the difference between the best and the worst SSD. PCMark 8 brings it all into perspective.

Here we see the results in MB/s as opposed to seconds to complete a task. The Force Series LS is the slowest drive in the PCMark 8 tests, but looking back at the timed tests, the differences are much lower than we would have imagined before this test went public.
