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.










In PCMark 8 (where the results are displayed as second), the performance doesn't seem as bad as in Vantage, but you can still see hints of lower performance. This test is actually very significant because it shows that under consumer workloads, SSD performance is very close from the best drive on the chart, to the lowest performing drive on the chart.
