Inland Professional 3D NAND M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe Gen 3 Review (Page 5)

By Chris Ramseyer | Oct 17, 2018 10:00 am CDT

Game Load Time


The smaller Inland M.2 SSDs deliver nearly the same game load-time performance as the larger model. Both drive trail the older MyDigitalSSD BPX that is no longer available.

PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth


The 512GB Inland NVMe SSD scored 437 MB/s in the PCMark 8 Storage Test. The 256GB drive loses around 37 MB/s over the ten-application test. The 128GB drive performance fades much more. We measured the 128GB Inland NVMe at just under 300 MB/s.

PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test


The PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test shows the newer firmware on the 256GB Inland to be better than the early firmware we tested on the SBX after a heavy workload. Phison and partners have reduced the amount of time it takes to recover from a heavy write session.

SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness and Power Tests


With that said, the entry-level drives still deliver an entry-level user experience as seen in the BAPCo SYSmark Responsiveness test.

Notebook Battery Life


The enhanced background activity, as seen in the PCMark 8 Extended Test, does affect overall drive power consumption. The older firmware used on the MyDigitalSSD SBX delivered 350 minutes of on-battery time. The newer firmware dropped the battery life to 323 minutes in our Lenovo Y700-17 gaming notebook.
