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?

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.
