Application Performance

Game Load Time


All of the drives in the chart today perform well loading typical games. The charts show just a little over a 1-second difference between the drives listed today. We use the Final Fantasy: Stormblood game load test with a discrete video card in an Intel Z270 platform.

PCMark 8 Storage Bandwidth


The PCMark 8 Storage Test uses nine applications to run ten tests that range from gaming to heavy Photoshop use with everything in between. The Phison E12 drives perform really well in general consumer applications even when the controller doesn't have a heat sink.

PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test


The extended test uses the same applications but fills the drives with data before starting performance measurements. The test also preconditions the drives into a deep degraded state to show the worst possible application performance.

We may more attention to the recovery phases where the drives have five minutes to perform background cleanup that is similar to your workload at home and the office. The Cardea Liquid performs well, but the Cardea II with the same controller and a working heat sink delivers slightly more performance under heavy workloads.
