The SSD Review uses benchmark software called PCMark Vantage x64 HDD Suite to create testing scenarios that might be used in the typical user experience. There are eight tests in all and the tests performed to record the speed of data movement in MB/s to which they are then given a numerical score after all of the tests are complete. The simulations are as follows:
- Windows Defender In Use
- Streaming Data from storage in games such as Alan Wake which allows for massive worlds and riveting non-stop action
- Importing digital photos into Windows Photo Gallery
- Starting the Vista Operating System
- Home Video editing with Movie Maker which can be very time consuming
- Media Center which can handle video recording, time shifting and streaming from Windows media center to an extender such as XBox
- Cataloging a music library
- Starting applications
CORSAIR FORCE SERIES MP510 NVME SSD RESULTS
These PCMark Vantage throughput speeds are typical, if not a bit low for this SSD. While it is good seeing 5 of 8 tests result in throughput over 1GB/s, other SSDs have faired quite a bit higher in the Total Score.
The SSD Review uses PCMark 8’s Storage test suite to create testing scenarios that might be used in the typical user experience. With 10 traces recorded from Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office and a selection of popular games, it covers some of the most popular light to heavy workloads. Unlike synthetic storage tests, the PCMark 8 Storage benchmark highlights real-world performance differences between storage devices. After an initial break-in cycle and three rounds of the testing, we are given a file score and bandwidth amount. The higher the score/bandwidth, the better the drive performs.
Our Storage 2.0 result of 5088marks and 644MB/s is EXACTLY the same result we had received in our original E12 review, on separate systems in different countries…as it should be. The result is very good when you consider the company kept and the fact that we are using 3D TLC memory.
TxBench is one of our newly discovered benchmarks that we works much the same as Crystal Diskmark, but with several other features. Advanced load benchmarking can be configured, as well as full drive information and data erasing via secure erase, enhanced secure erase, TRIM and overwriting.

Once again, throughput highs of 3.4GB/s is excellent and consistent through several tests. At 157MB/s, our low 4K random write performance in best shown in this software.
