HP EX920 SSD Review - Mainstream Perfection (Page 3)

By Chris Ramseyer from Oct 18, 2018 @ 10:00 CDT

Game Load Time


This series gained a following when released thanks to its application performance and low latency. Our game load time test with Final Fantasy: Stormblood shows how the high random read performance and optimized background flash management allow the drive to load the game faster than any other flash-based SSD we've tested.

PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth


When it comes to general application performance, the 1TB HP EX920 tops all but the Samsung 970 Pro, a high-performance workstation class SSD with MLC flash.

PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test


We suspect the EX920 fell short of the 970 Pro's performance due to the way it handles repetitive workloads. The EX920's performance degrades quickly as we write data to the drive. It takes longer to recover than most of other drives.

SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness and Power Tests


This drive's high random performance allows it to reach the top of the Responsiveness Test built into BAPCo's SYSmark 2014 SE software. This is a direct measurement of the user experience. The drive is also very efficient with power. The watt-hour rating is for the entire system and not just the drive.

Notebook Battery Life


The high efficiency comes through in our Lenovo Y700-17 notebook running BAPCo's MobileMark 2012 1.5 software. The 1TB EX920 only trails the older Intel 600p with the drives we compared it against.
