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.
PCMark 10 Full System Drive Benchmark
We typically want to see a minimum of 300MB/s bandwidth, and the IM2P33E8 gives us that and then some. The IM2P33E8 handles this heavy workload exceptionally well. This doesn't come as any surprise considering the use case scenarios this SSD is intended to tackle.
PCMark 10 Quick System Drive Benchmark
Here again, we are looking for a minimum of 300MB/s bandwidth, but this time we do not get it. However, this is the one time we will not consider this result more important than the full test because the intended use case for the IM2P33E8 is industrial/commercial. The result is still a bit lower than we are looking for but still in what we consider an acceptable range.
