Real-World Performance Testing

Game Load Time

All of the areas of low random performance have ramifications when we move over to real software. The game load test uses the Final Fantasy: Stormblood game to measure the load time of levels through a dedicated benchmark. The 1TB T-Force Delta RGB took just over 18 seconds. That's very close to the same score we recorded just days ago with the Samsung 860 QVO, a drive using 4-bit per cell memory technology. It's also nearly four seconds longer than the Crucial MX500 that costs about the same, but doesn't have the lighting features.

PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth

The PCMark 8 Storage Bandwidth test uses nine applications in ten different workloads. We combine the results into an easy to digest average throughput score. The 1TB Delta RGB falls to the bottom of the performance list with this diverse array of comparison products.

PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test

Under a heavy workload, the T-Force Delta RGB falls flat. The first chart with throughput shows us the results but the second chart shows us why. Under a heavy workload, the latency gets so high that the drive spends most of the time simply waiting on the IO transaction.

SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness and Power Tests

SYSmark mimics a typical day in the office on a PC. The virtual user uses applications from Microsoft, Adobe and other while the software measures the responsiveness for each application and task. The scoring comes from a typical office PC with the OEM version of a Samsung 850 EVO. That system scores an even 1,000.

The 1TB Delta RGB performed better than we expected in this light workload test given the results of the other tests where the workload quickly ran up the latency.
