PCMark 8 Storage Consistency Test is one of our favorite benchmarks. Nowadays, many drives are well optimized for high benchmark scores when they are empty, but what separates the professional players from the amateurs is how it stands up to a truly punishing workload. PCMark 8's Storage Consistency Test is designed exactly for this purpose. Going through five phases -- precondition, degradation, steady state, recovery, and clean up -- to extend beyond real world application simulations, this benchmark takes just over two days to complete, but the results are revealing of a SSD's true capabilities. Overall, the ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 512GB was very good. First, I tried it against the Crucial P1 500GB, a mainstream performance NVMe SSD. The SX8200 Pro was a whopping 370% faster on average. Compared against other performance SSDs, the discontinued RD400A remains to be the king of this test, being 35% faster than the SX8200 Pro on average. Against the more expensive Western Digital Black NVMe SSD, the SX8200 Pro fared well; giving up about 23% performance on average in one of the most demanding SSD tests ever created.
