Gaming performance isn't groundbreaking with the 480GB BPX Pro. The drive does stay within a half second of the Adata SX8200, the chart-topper. The new Pro does perform better than the previous generation BPX by nearly a full second.

The original BPX delivered very strong application performance with its MLC flash. TLC flash has come a long way since the BPX came to market. The new 480GB BPX Pro is the rightful successor and takes its place at the top of the general application chart. This is a different outcome from the 1TB class products where the BPX Pro was closer to the middle of the group ranked by performance.

The 480GB BPX Pro performs very well under heavy workloads. This is typical for Phison controllers. The 480GB BPX Pro takes longer to recover when we add idle time. This is also typical but for newer SSDs that rely heavily on SLC cache and with less processor cores.

We were again surprised to see the BPX Pro near the bottom of our Responsiveness Test. We will need to investigate this issue further over the coming weeks. We plan to install a BPX Pro in a system we use every day to see how it "feels" under a consumer workload.

The 480GB BPX Pro performs a bit better in our notebook battery life test than the later 960GB model. We measured five hours and ten minutes in our Lenovo Y700-17 gaming system.
