Seagate Barracuda Pro 12TB review: the biggest hard drive ever

A monstrous amount of storage in a single 3.5" drive


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.

PCMark8 confirms the image that we saw in PCMark7: the Barracuda Pro 12TB leads. 

On the next page you can find the subscores.
