Our write transfer is 100GB in size and composed of more than 62,000 files. Needless to say, this is no easy test. This is actually a very good result when you compare the Rocket NVMe to the BPX Pro. Both are E12 controlled SSDs with BiCS TLC flash. We generally like to see a transfer rate that exceeds 500 MB/s, and the Rocket NVMe SSD gives us what we are looking for.
As always, read performance is more important than write performance. Again, we find the Rocket NVMe 4TB delivering the goods better than most of the competing SSDs in our test pool.
Game Level Loading
About 1.5 seconds spread across six level loads separates the 4TB Rocket NVMe from the flash-based leader Samsung's 960 Pro. It's not enough, in our opinion, to significantly impact the overall user experience. That said, we like to see SSDs get in the 10-second range.
