Intel SSD DC P4510 NVMe PCIe Review: Blistering 3GB/s Transfers, With Low Latency

Intel SSD DC P4510 - PCMark Storage 2.0 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.

It would be uncommon for drives like the Intel SSD DC P4510s featured here to be used for the workloads that exist in this benchmark, but we figured some of you would be interested in the comparisons nonetheless. Here, the Intel SSD DC P4510s finish ahead of the other NAND-based SSDs and trail only the consumer-targeted Intel Optane SSD 900P, which features 3D Xpoint memory and is tuned for exactly these types of workloads. The Intel SSD DC P4510 drives led the other NAND-based devices across the board, with the fastest individual tests and highest overall scores and throughput.
