PCMark 10 Storage Test is the most advanced and most accurate real-world consumer storage test ever made. There are four different tests you can choose from; we run two of them. The Full System Drive Benchmark and the Quick System Drive Benchmark. The Full System Drive Benchmark writes 204 GB of data over the duration of the test. The Quick System Drive Benchmark writes 23 GB of data over the duration of the test. These tests directly correlate with user experience. Of the two tests, we feel that the Quick System Drive Test most accurately replicates a typical user experience.

This test writes a total of 204GB of data, which proves to be a bit much for our QLC powered test subject. The Rocket Q falls to the bottom of our chart. However, it's still nearly as fast as Samsung's older 960 Pro SSD. Although acceptable, we would like to see a bit better performance here, but we will remind you that we consider the next test to be more important.

Okay, this is more like it! Fantastic performance coming from the Rocket Q. This is where we want to see great performance more than any other testing we do. The Rocket Q is outperforming a whole host of top-shelf SSDs, which is quite remarkable considering that it is the most affordable SSD of the bunch. This proves that for most consumer-related everyday tasks, the Rocket Q will deliver a tier-1 user experience.
