ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL
Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) are the most complete test bed available for the solid state drive today. The benchmark displays test results for, not only throughput but also, IOPS and Disk Access Times. Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and use in our benchmark testing.
Anvil Storage Utilities confirms all that we are seeing, for the most part, and also lets us know that, after formatting, there is 223GB available on the disk for storage.
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.
PCMARK 8 STORAGE RESULTS
In PCMark 8 the Team Group T-Force Cardea M.2 NVMe SSD scored 5073 points and averaged 512MB/s in bandwidth.
This score places the Team Group T-Force Cardea on the low end of the spectrum when we look at PCIe NVMe SSD performance, although it does better the Intel 600p NVMe SSD.
