Synthetic Storage Benchmarks
We are using PCMark 10’s Full System Drive Storage Benchmark. It outputs an overall score (higher is better) that is derived from the Bandwidth (higher is better) as well as access time (lower is better) results.
In PCMark 10 Full System Drive Storage Benchmark the MSI SPATIUM M470 1TB PCIe 4.0 Gen4 NVMe SSD scored the highest points in this benchmark at 2181. This is 1% above the CORSAIR Force MP600 1TB SSD which has proven to be a really high performer for us. It’s a solid SSD, and the new MSI SPATIUM M470 seems to be on par with it, if not just slightly edging it out. One thing is for sure, the MSI SPATIUM M470 is much faster than the Sabrent Rocket at 11% higher performance.
Looking more closely at the PCMark 10 results, we also find that the Bandwidth score is higher on the MSI SPATIUM M470 1TB at 358.49 MB/s. This is again just 1% higher than the CORSAIR Force MP600, so pretty close, but just edging it out. The Sabrent Rocket is pretty slow here, the MSI SPATIUM M470 is 13% higher on Bandwidth.
In terms of Access Time, the MSI SPATIUM M470 1TB is once again slightly faster than the CORSAIR Force MP600 at 79 versus 80. It’s a huge difference compared to the Sabrent Rocket which has a much worse access time.
We are using PassMark’s PerformanceTEST Disk Mark benchmark only. This test benchmarks Disk Sequential Read, Disk Sequential Write, IOPS 32KQD20, IOPS 4KQD1 tests and outputs an overall score (higher is better.)
In PassMark PerformanceTEST Disk Mark benchmark the MSI SPATIUM M470 1TB SSD scores 37723 which is just under the CORSAIR Force MP600, which is a very strong performer. The MSI SPATIUM M470 is only under by 4%. It’s a lot closer to the CORSAIR Force MP600 performance than it is the Sabrent Rocket, compared to that SSD the MSI SPATIUM M470 is a whopping 20% faster.
