The Galax HOF Pro slots in exactly where we've come to expect Phison E16-based SSDs will. It's not the fastest when launching game levels, but it still does well enough that we can't really complain.

PCMark 8

As impressive as the benchmark results to this point have been, the results of our PCMark 8 testing takes the cake. As we've explained many times, we consider PCMark 8 storage testing to be the most important test there is for overall storage performance evaluation.

For the first time, an E16-based SSD scored higher than Samsung's 970 Pro. Up to this point, all the E16-based SSDs we've tested have tied the 970 Pro in scoring at 5103. They have been able to deliver more bandwidth than the 970 Pro, but never a better score. A single point in this test is hard to come by, but the HOF Pro has done it by delivering a score of 5104 along with the best storage bandwidth of any flash-based SSD we've tested on our X570 platform.

These results again reinforce our assertion that other than Optane, Phison E16-based SSDs will deliver the best user experience currently available for your Gen4 enabled AMD system. Period.
