9. PCMark 7, PCMark 8
Below you see the results of Futuremark's PCMark 7 Professional edition. The software includes 7 PC tests for Windows 7, combining more than 25 individual workloads.
The Toshiba drive scored 5582 points at the storage benchmark, which is the highest we have seen from an SSD so far.
We continue with the PCMark 8 Storage benchmark, which uses traces recorded from Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and a selection of popular games. Unlike synthetic storage tests, the PCMark 8 Storage benchmark highlights real-world performance differences between storage devices.
The Toshiba HG6 256GB SSD scored 4994 points, outperforming the 4965 score we have measured with the Crucial M550 512GB drive.
It is obvious that both the PCMark 7 and PCMark 8 benchmarks include low demand storage tests, resulting to very small differences (if any) logged among the SSDs we test.
