Application Performance

Game Load Time

In the next few pages, we move to real-world applications starting with Final Fantasy: Stormblood, a game with a built-in load time test. The 1TB Pilot-E takes the second spot in the game load test trailing the EX950 by less than a second. This is very close to what we expected from the drive that shows strong random read performance in our synthetic tests.

PCMark 8 Storage Bandwidth

With the workload spread to nine different consumer and prosumer applications, the 1TB Pilot-E falls to the middle of the performance chart. This is one of the few surprises in the testing with the drive.

PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test

The PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test shows similar performance in the recovery phases that we observed in the previous chart. The Pilot-E does trail the other SM2262EN drives in the nine applications. The performance under heavy workloads is similar, but less consistent.
