Disk Copy Benchmark


With DiskBench we place a 50GB single file onto the test drive. We copy this file from the test drive to a new folder on the test drive, volume to volume. This tests the performance the drive is able to copy a file from itself to itself as if you were copying files on the same drive. Results are in duration Seconds, lower is better.

In DiskBench copying a 50GB file on the SSD to the SSD in a different folder the time is slightly faster than the Sabrent Rocket SSD and a lot faster than the PATRIOT VIPER VPR400, in fact, it’s 14% faster. It is competitive with the CORSAIR Force MP600 and MSI SPATIUM M470, but the SPATIUM M480 still keeps the lead.

Game Load Time and Workstation Performance

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker Benchmark

The Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker Benchmark is a unique game benchmark that allows us to objectively calculate the load times of different game scenes loading on the SSD. This benchmark runs multiple scenes that it benchmarks, it also keeps track of the scene load times for each scene and reports a duration, in addition, it provides an overall average duration of all the scenes together. This provides consistency in testing. We report the overall average scene load time of all the scenes in seconds, lower is better.

In game load times, the Acer Predator GM7000 SSD is faster than the Sabrent Rocket and matches the MSI SPATIUM M480 and CORSAIR Force MP600 in the performance of loading. It’s only .1 and .2 off from the SPATIUM M470 and PATRIOT VIPER VPR400. These differences are minuscule.

SPECworkstation 3.1

We are using SPECworkstation 3.1 and specifically the WPCstorage test. “The storage workload is based on storage transaction traces from a wide variety of professional applications engaged in real work.” It includes media and entertainment, product development, life sciences, energy, and general operations. Each program receives a score, and they are averaged together for an overall score, higher is better.

For professional workstation workloads, the Acer Predator GM7000 SSD is tremendously faster and better for this than any other SSD in our lineup, by a large margin. At 7.11 it is 27% faster than the MSI SPATIUM M480 for workstation application performance. This is a pretty massive, and noticeable difference in performance.

Coberating the CrystalDiskMark data, in ATTO Disk Benchmark the read and write speed tops the charts, beating the MSI SPATIUM M480 here slightly. It has a read speed of 6.98GB/s and a write speed of 6.25GB/s. This is just simply the fastest SSD on this graph.
