Application Performance

On the following pages, we move to real-world applications. We don't expect the P200 to outright win any of the performance comparisons against this competition but the drive carries such a low price that many will accept the performance compromise to gain capacity.

Keeping costs in mind, how much does less than two seconds cost loading a video game? The 2TB Patriot P200 loads the five Final Fantasy: Stormblood levels in just under 17 seconds. The 2TB MX500 does it in just over 15 seconds.

PCMark 8 Storage Bandwidth

The UL PCMark 8 Storage Test uses a wider range of applications to test the storage subsystem. The 2TB P200 scores nearly 230 MB/s in the ten tests using nine applications. This is a massive improvement over the fastest hard disk drives and still very close to the powerful Crucial MX500.

The Patriot P200 is not the drive you want to use under heavy sustained workloads.

The service time results show us how the latency can build and cause a massive spike under heavy workloads. The drive recovers but takes longer to reach steady performance again compared to the other drives in the charts.
