Gigabyte AORUS Gen4 7000s SSD Review


SPECworkstation 3 Benchmark

The SPECworkstation 3 was introduced in 2018 and features 30 workloads containing nearly 140 tests. The developer updated the storage workloads that are based on traces of nearly two-dozen applications. We ran the storage workload (WPCstorge) and are using the results from just three of the tests to show the performance difference between the SSDs that we are testing. Individual scores are generated for each test and a composite score for each category is calculated based on a reference machine, yielding a “bigger is better” result. We are using the actual ‘raw score’ result in three tests that we want to show actual transfer rates rather than a composite score.

The first workload that we will be showing involves a Handbrake transcode and the AORUS Gen4 7000s M.2 NVMe SSDs finished with 620 MB/s read on this workload.

In the 7zip workload the AORUS Gen4 7000s drive finished around 5900 MB/s read and 250 MB/s write.
