PCMark 7 aims to shed a little more insight into real life performance of your computer hardware by semi-synthetic means -- and all insight is good, right? The great thing about standardized tests is anyone can repeat them and get very similar results, given identical hardware. PCMark 7 is a Windows desktop environment based test, which is exactly what we are after. I am not going to narrate the stuff above in detail, because we all know graphs are there for a very good reason. Just to give you a bit of insight if you are too lazy to go through all eight comparisons, the Western Digital Blue SN500 NVMe SSD 500GB came in last place overall, but still within 5% of the top-rated SX8200 Pro 512GB. Unfortunately, this was also behind the Toshiba RC100 240GB, which had the second lowest score. In the subcategories, it only edged out the RC100 in two tests. PCMark 7 uses some pretty simple simulations, so it is pretty optimized for drives with relatively fast linear read.
