Game Load Time
All of the drives in the game load-time test using Final Fantasy: Stormblood score within a second of each other. This is common with high-performance SSDs in this price range. The workload isn't all that difficult, so we're not stressing the drives.
PCMark 8 Total Storage Bandwidth
Even though we spotted some differences between the BPX Pro and the addlink S70 with synthetic workloads, the two drives performance nearly the same with a wide range of applications as the measuring stick.
PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test
The addlink S70 lacks the same high performance we observed under heavy workloads with the MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro. This comes down to the overprovisioning space reserved by the BPX Pro. The practice of holding some cells back from the user started with the idea of increasing performance and endurance.
SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness and Power Tests
The Responsiveness Test comes from BAPCo's SYSmark 2014 SE suite. The software runs a number of office-focused applications. The base score of 1,000 comes from an OEM version of the Samsung 850 EVO.
Most of the drives deliver a more responsive user experience than the 850 EVO including the addlink S70.
Notebook Battery Life
Power consumption has historically been a weak point for Phison-based SSDs. This is also true for the Addlink S70. The drive delivers nearly 5 hours in our Lenovo Y700-17 gaming notebook. It's a decent score, but far from the best that we've measured with an NVMe SSD.
