This testing is just to see what the drive is capable of in an FOB (Fresh Out of Box) state under optimal conditions. We are utilizing Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit for this testing. Same Hardware, just an OS change.
We chose not to secure erase the 950 Pro before these tests, just a format and a TRIM. Keep in mind that if we did secure erase the 950 Pro prior to this round of testing the results would likely be even higher.
Typically, we don't comment on these tests, because the results pretty much speak for themselves. This time, however, we are going to comment on the PCMark 8 results. Over 800 MB/s storage bandwidth? That is much better than anything we've ever seen; arrays included. We are truly amazed by the 950 Pro.
