Game Load Time

The high random performance allows the SX8200 Pro to outperform all other 256GB models with NAND flash shipping today. In our game load test with Final Fantasy: Stromblood the SX8200 Pro surpasses the HP EX920 but only by an incremental margin.

PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth

The UL PCMark 8 Storage Test uses nine commonly used applications for ten tests. It's a broad range test with a wide net that covers most PC users. The 256GB SX8200 Pro managers to outperform the other next-generation drive in the chart slightly. The SX8200 Pro is significantly faster than the previous generation products like the original SX8200 and HP EX920.

The 256GB SX8200 Pro doesn't show us strong workstation-level performance. This is an issue for all of the SX8200 Pro drives we tested. ADATA focused on consumer workloads and optimized the series for those tasks.

In the two years, we've ran the BAPCo SYSmark test of system responsiveness, we've never had a single drive take the lead in all three of the popular capacities. The SX8200 Pro 1TB, 512GB, and 256GB is the first to reach the top across the board. The 256GB drive only outperforms the previous generation by a single point, but a win is a win.

Notebook Battery Life

The 256GB SX8200 Pro scored 329 minutes in our notebook battery life test using the versatile Lenovo Y700-17 gaming system. This is slightly higher than the category average for this capacity.
