Test Setup & Methodology
There are many ways to test a storage drive, and we have chosen to include close to every test possible. We will start with a typical benchmark analysis of the formatted drive with various village scenarios. To see the impact it might have, the drive will be tested empty as well as with 25%, 50%, and 75% space usage. For these tests, we will be using Anvil’s Storage Utilities, AS SSD Benchmark, ATTO Benchmark, and CrystalDiskMark.
Application and Gaming Performance
Besides these synthetic fill tests, the drive is tested with PCMark 8’s storage benchmark to get real-world performance results.
Plain Drive Performance
Following the fillage tests, the partition gets removed, and we check the drive’s raw performance. These tests will determine the hardware’s capabilities while eliminating any interference from the set file system. AIDA64’s storage benchmark is a great tool for this, and it helps us paint an even clearer picture of the drive.

Each of the following pages will contain the benchmark screenshots with 0% and 75% data fillage for the base apps. The comparing charts will show the drives with 0% fillage for comparison reasons. The analysis charts show us how steady the performance is as the drive fills up.
