Intel SSD 760P - PCMark Storage Tests
We like PCMark 8's Storage 2.0 benchmark module for its real-world application measurement approach to testing. PCMark 8 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 and photo editing with Adobe applications, we feel 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.
There is only a 2.5% spread separating the highest and lowest scores here in terms of overall performance. And the individual test results are in-line with the overall score as well, considering only a few fractions of a second separate the drives. Regardless, the Intel SSD 760p finishes in the lower third here in this tight grouping.
