Let’s see how real-world was when writing a movie folder containing seven 1080P movies over to the SSD. For this test, we are going to measure write performance by transferring over a 30.6GB folder of movies off of a PCIe NVMe SSD to the drive being tested to see how performance looks.
The WD SN500 250GB drive finished this file transfer test with an average speed of 481.5 MB/s with no data on the drive. Not a bad score for an entry-level PCIe NVMe SSD where the SLC cache gets filled up and performance is not going to be at the top rated speeds you see advertised.
Let’s wrap this up!
