This benchmark is about the only place in all our testing that the MP600 doesn't eviscerate the flash-based competition. Although not the fastest, the MP600 is still plenty fast. Only about 1 second separates it from the top performing flash-based SSD on our chart.

We decided to showcase the extreme ends of the spectrum, by including a mechanical HDD for comparison. Man is it slow. At the opposite end, we have Optane, which is by far the fastest, but will cost you as much as moderate gaming system on its own.

We feel that PCMark 8 storage test is the best indicator of real-world type performance, and as such we typically consider the winner of this test our current performance leader. The winner for all SSDs is not surprisingly Intel's Optane 905p. But it's powered by exotic and extremely expensive phase-change materials, so it's certainly not a mainstream SSD.

The rest of the SSDs on our chart are mainstream, and to our surprise the MP600 beats them all. What we find most impressive, is that the MP600 manages to outperform Samsung's 2-bit flash-based 970 Pro. Now that is saying something.
