Moving our focus to real-world applications, we start with a game load-time test featured in Final Fantasy: Stormblood.

The 960 GB BPX Pro scores right between the Adata SX8200 and Samsung 970 Pro. It doesn't win the test overall but staying within one-third of a second of the fastest drive on the chart is a strong position to be in.

PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth

The PCMark 8 Storage Bandwidth Test uses nine applications to test ten common workloads that many of us run every day. In this test, the BPX Pro performs very close to the HP EX920 that costs nearly $50 more. The BPX Pro does outperform the Adata SX8200 in this capacity.

PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test

In the PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test that works the drives for nearly 24 hours, we see another aspect of performance. Like many of Phison's controllers, the E12 performs well under heavy write conditions. The drive takes a little longer to recover compared to some of the other drives. This has become common for drives that rely heavily on SLC cache.

We're surprised to see the 960GB BPX Pro struggle in our BAPCo SYSmark Responsiveness test. The drive matches the SanDisk Extreme Pro NVMe with a score of 1,004 points. That trails the 970 EVO and SX8200, two products the BPX Pro outperformed through most of this review.

The 960GB BPX Pro shows strong efficiency in our desktop system. The Lenovo Y700-17 notebook consumed just 9.15-watt-hours during the Responsiveness Test.

Notebook Battery Life

The efficiency didn't carry over to the battery test where the 960GB BPX Pro delivered just 292 minutes in the Y700-17 using MobileMark software.
