WD Black SN750 NVMe Heatsink SSD Review: Speedy And Cool

WD Black SN750 Heatsink SSD - PCMark Storage 2.0 Tests

We like PCMark's Storage 2.0 benchmark module for its real-world application measurement approach to testing. PCMark 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 are 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.

The WD Black SN750 finishes about in the middle of the pack according to PCMark's Storage Benchmark. It's numbers are in-line with the original Samsung SSD 970 EVO, but trail the newer EVO Plus and AData drives overall. The margins separating the drives here are relatively small, however. All of the drives are plenty fast for the type of day-to-day computing workloads presented in this benchmark suite.
