SK hynix Gold P31 M.2 NVMe Solid State Drive Review

Testing – Anvil, PCMark 8 & AIDA64
The next test is Anvil Storage Utilities, which is a really great piece of software. The SSD benchmark gives you scores for both read and write as well as a combined score.

Next up is PCMark 8, we will be running the typical Storage Benchmark.

We have added back AIDA64’s Disk Benchmark to our testing. The linear test will actually scan from the first physical sector to the last on the test drive. This gives a good representation of sustained read / write operations. We will be running the Linear Read test using a 8MB block size.

We then run the Linear Write test using the same 8MB block size.

Here we can see that SK hynix’s HYPERWRITE technology at work. The drive actually keeps solid performance up until 60% of the drive is written to. This is far better than many other drives that we’ve tested which drop off between 10-20%.
