We ran the Storage test on PCMark 8. This software performs a very long test, with some “real world” tests, such as importing pictures, video editing, starting applications, and gaming, among others. The result is shown as a score.
In the graph below are the scores achieved in the PCMark 8 Storage Score by each tested drive.
In those “real world” tests, the Desktop SSHD 2 TB drive performed very well, achieving a score 36% faster than the Barracuda 2 TB.
