PCMark Vantage - Drives with Data Testing
Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0
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.
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.
Vantage hit the market when HDDs still ruled the market, and the Data on Disk test has just about ran its course. In the coming weeks, we're replacing this test with a new fill test ran on an analyzer using modern software and with data on the target drive. Sadly, we didn't have enough drives through the test to use it with the Extreme PRO. The Vantage workload isn't strenuous enough to show a large distinction between the drives with half of the flash filled with data. We do see some small differences, but in light workloads, there will not be a large distinction between many drives on this chart.
