Phison PS5012-E12 Preview with FW 11.0 - Hold On Tight (Page 3)

Game Load Time


The updated E12 breaks into the 13-second area in our game load time test using Final Fantasy: Stormblood application.

PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth


The PCMark 8 Standard Storage Test uses ten application traces from software many of us run every day, like Word, Excel, and Photoshop. The updated E12 runs neck and neck with the HP EX920, one of the drives we currently recommend for our enthusiast readers.

PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test


Where the E12 has an advantage over the EX920 and other SM2262 controller drives is performance under heavy workloads. The SM2262 uses more cache to increase performance and the E12 does it in processor cores to keep the performance high under heavy workloads. The E12 is a strong controller and Phison even plans to build a datacenter version that the company displayed at Flash Memory Summit.

SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness and Power Tests


The responsiveness of the updated E12 is down when we compared it to the other products but it did learned a new trick, extreme efficiency. We never see Phison reference design drives winning power tests. The E12 is the first to even be on the upper half of the chart.
