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.

We were expecting a little more, but then again, this SSD has no built-in overprovisioning, which would help considerably when running heavy consumer type workloads. As you can see, the Cardea Liquid delivers below-average performance when performing heavy consumer type workloads.

Checking in on more typical moderate type consumer workloads, we find the Cardea Liquid delivering Tier-1 NVMe SSD performance. This is where it matters most, and this is where we find the Cardea Liquid excelling. In terms of overall SSD performance, we believe the Cardia Liquid to rank in the top seven consumer 1TB class SSDs we've tested to date.
