Game Load Time
Of the three BPX Pro SSDs, we tested this week, the 240GB model is the only to slip back into the 14-second range in our game load time test. The result is still very good but for this capacity. Deeper down the list you can see how many of the other drives also took longer to load the game files.
PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth
PCMark 8 uses nine common applications to load ten different traces. The test provides a broad spectrum of computing with a heavy emphasis on software most of us use every day.
The 240GB BPX Pro takes the premier spot at the top of the chart. The 480GB and now the 240GB share this honor but the 960GB isn't that far behind on its page.
PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test
Difference like we see today in the three different BPX Pro capacities are why we prefer to test all sizes against others in the same class. The 240GB model is faster than the other products in the heavy workload portion of the PCMark 8 Extended Test. When we hit the recovery phases, the drive starts to fall back but only because it takes longer to recover.
SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness and Power Tests
As we mentioned in the BPX Pro 480GB section, these drives don't score well in the SYSmark 2014 SE Responsiveness Test. We noticed the original BPX was hit and miss in this test with the 480GB delivering one of the best scores we've ever recorded and the 240GB significantly lower.
Notebook Battery Life
We used our Lenovo Y700-17 with the BPX Pro 240GB and recorded 310 minutes of battery power using MobileMark. The BPX Pro isn't a great choice for notebook users that demand every last drop of battery life, but for casual users, the drive works good enough to get the job done.
