Kingston Fury Renegade Gen4 SSD Review – Just How Fast Does it Get

PCMARK 10 FULL SYSTEM STORAGE BENCHMARK

PCMark 10 Storage Benchmarks produce an overall score as a measure of drive performance. Comparing devices is as simple as comparing scores. The tests also measure and report the bandwidth and average access time performance for the drive. Each test uses traces recorded while performing real-world tasks such as booting Windows 10, starting applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, working with applications such as Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint, and copying several large files and many small files.

PCMark 10 results placed the Kingston Fury Renegade Gen4 2TB NVMe SSD at number 4 of all SSDs tested to date which is a return.

    If you’re going to keep including the Plextor M10P in the charts, how about telling us where we might buy one since its been over a year and I haven’t seen one for sale yet. If its vaporware it should be dropped from the charts instead of wasting space.
