Test results: PCMark8
PCMark 8’s storage benchmark is once again based on traces, but this time around, modern software is used. PCMark 8 contains traces of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Indesign, Adobe After Effects, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, World of Warcraft and Battlefield 3. The total score is determined by the geometric mean of the different subscores. Again, all traces are played in ‘real time,’ which includes idle time. The score is the average of three runs.
We see the same pattern again in PCMark8: the IronWolf Pro is not a hard drive for your desktop.
On the next page you can find the subscores.
