Note: PCMark 8 Storage benchmark is ideal for testing the performance of SSDs, HDDs and hybrid drives. Using traces recorded from Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and a selection of popular games, PCMark 8 Storage highlights real-world performance differences between storage devices.
Futuremark's latest version of PCMark is the best to date and shows us how chasing megabytes per second is often misleading. PCMark 8 shows us performance in measurements of time. A tenth of a second here and a tenth of a second there, how many would really notice the difference?
PCMark 8 Storage Bandwidth
Vector 150 performs well here, but it can be said that nearly all of the drives perform well in these tests. Looking at the MB/s tally, we see a much wider separation than we did when splitting hairs with the time based results.
