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 SN550 NVMe SSD 1TB came in fourth place overall, beating out all other Western Digital SSDs by a very small margin. For the most part, it was in the middle of the results for most of these tests, with it only standing out in the Gaming test. PCMark 7 uses some pretty simple simulations, so it is optimized for drives with relatively fast linear read.
