Maxed-Out Performance

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 empty volumes of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012 R2 64-bit for this testing.

Note: We ran these benchmarks using OCZ's NVMe driver to give us some insight into what we can expect from OCZ's coming retail version of the XG5.

This is the highest PCMark 8 storage bandwidth we've ever seen from any TLC-based SSD. Only the 950 & 960 Pro can put up better numbers, and those are both MLC SSDs. The TLC-based 960 EVO doesn't even come close to the XG5.
