11.1 seconds is the fastest time that any Phison-powered SSD to come through our lab has run this test. The time is right in there with the SSDs that run this test best. This test is more or less the only place where the FireCuda 520 doesn't dominate the field.
TweakTown ranks SSD performance/user experience based on the results of UL's PCMark 8. We use this test for ranking SSDs in terms of overall performance because it represents real-world usage scenarios accurately. We focus more on storage bandwidth than we do score because it is more granular in nature.
Seagate's FireCuda 520 1TB delivers the goods better than any flash-based SSD we've tested on our AMD X570 platform to date, including other E16 powered SSDs. Maybe Seagate's custom firmware is serving up a little more than what others can do? Who knows?
