PCMark 7 Storage Benchmarks

We really like PCMark 7's Secondary Storage benchmark module for its pseudo real-world application measurement approach to testing. PCMark 7 offers a trace-based measurement of system response times under various scripted workloads of traditional client / desktop system operation. From simple application start-up performance, to data streaming from a drive in a game engine, and video editing with Windows Movie Maker, we feel more comfortable that these tests reasonably illustrate the performance profile of SSDs in an end-user / consumer PC usage model, more so than a purely synthetic transfer test.

Futuremark's PCMark 7 Secondary Storage

If you want to judge an SSD based on its performance in more real-world situations, PCMark 7 gives ADATA reason to celebrate, because the XPG SX900 rocked it. It bested the field (by a hair) in the Secondary Storage test, and it has the top scores in every sub test except for the Importing Pictures test, where the Corsair Force GT edged it out by 0.05 of a point.
