Jon's Consumer PCIe SSD Z270 Intel Review Test System Specifications

 

 

We would like to thank ASRock, Crucial, Intel, Corsair, RamCity, IN WIN, and Seasonic for making our test system possible.

The RC100 is fully compatible with OCZ's latest SSD Utility. The utility makes drive maintenance and monitoring simple and easy to understand. The above screenshots let us know that HMB is enabled at the desired amount.

The majority of our testing is performed with our test drive as our boot volume. Our boot volume is 75% full for all OS Disk "C" drive testing to replicate a typical consumer OS volume implementation. We feel that most of you will be utilizing your SSDs for your boot volume and that presenting you with results from an OS volume is more relevant than presenting you with empty secondary volume results.

 

System settings: Cstates and Speed stepping are both disabled in our systems BIOS. Windows High-Performance power plan is enabled. Windows write caching is enabled, and Windows buffer flushing is disabled. We are utilizing Windows 10 Pro 64-bit OS for all our testing. Empty Windows 10 benchmark screenshots will be shown on our Maxed-Out-Performance (MOP) page.

 

Please note: When comparing our results to those of other review sites, look at page 10 Maxed Out Performance-Windows 10 which is done with the disk empty.

Please note: We ran the RC100 fully patched for Spectre/Meltdown on all benchmarks except for SYSmark. None of the competing SSDs were run patched. It is important to keep in mind that the RC100's patched performance is significantly handicapped relative to our test pool.

 

Benchmark screenshots will be shown 240GB model first followed by the 480GB model.
