Jon Coulter at TweakTown reviews the “Intel Optane SSD 900P 280GB & 480GB AIC NVMe PCIe SSD” using BAPCo’s SYSmark 2014 SE Benchmark Responsiveness test and Overall rating.
According to TweakTown, “SYSmark 2014 SE is considered the gold standard for testing system performance because it is an application based benchmark. This test gives us the ultimate in real-world results because it utilizes actual applications running on the system, instead of playing back recorded traces. If you want to know what kind of impact a particular SSD will have on your system’s overall performance; this test will show you.”
Also, “This lineup is a bit different than the others we’ve used for our test pool to this point. This is because these are the only SSDs we’ve run on our new Z270 storage testing platform. With all other benchmarks, there is very little difference between our Z170 and Z270 platforms. However, with SYSMark there is a marked difference due to increased CPU performance. 10 points is a big deal, and the 900P is beating the world’s fastest flash-based consumer SSD by a whopping 75 points.”
