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 Micron 2550 Gen4 1TB NVMe SSD , not only in the top 10 of all SSDs tested but also, in the top four results to date.
PCMARK 10 QUICK SYSTEM STORAGE BENCHMARK
The Quick System Drive Benchmark is a subset of the Full test and is more representative of typical daily usage to show what would be expected regarding hybrid SSD performance on a day-to-day basis.
The Micron 2550 held that top four placing in the Quick System test as well.
TRUE DATA TESTING
For our True Data Testing, we simply loaded 15GB video, music, photo and OS files onto the Micron 2550 Gen 4 NVMe SSD and copied the data to a new folder on that same disk.
Posting the results of just the DRAMless SSD comparison was rather unfair to the Micron 2550 so we thought we would throw in the overall results test up top with the DRAMless result below. Not only is the Micron 2550 the best DRAMless SSD that we have had in hand to date, but also, it does a respectable job of surpassing so many other DRAM-based SSD as we can see above.
PASSMARK PERFORMANCE TEST
We thought we might add a few extras in our report today, PassMark Performance Test DiskMark component being a nice addition. This software tests sequential reads and writes, along with IOPS and compares the result with millions of other SSDs worldwide. We might suggest being in the 99th percentile of all SSDs tested was a nice result.
The Micron 2550 had respectable results in our DiskMark tests as well, although this test does match it more with its DRAMless brethren.
FINAL FANTASY XIV: ENDWALKER BENCHMARK
The Final Fantasy Benchmark is a new tool in our arsenal and geared specifically to the gamer. The software is installed directly on the SSD and the SSD tested, providing and end result of FPS and scene transition times.
The Micron 2550 DRAMless Gen 4 SSD has proven once again that it stands with the best SSDs out there. This low game loading result is excellent.
