Hi Everyone - I want to get some feedback as to what tests and things you want to see most in SSD reviews. I plan on putting together an X570 based test bench in the near future that will be able to zoom up to PCIe 4.0 speeds and start reviewing these things. I've even got a Microcenter or two nearby so I can grab some of those Inland ones to look at. A few of the things that I've already thought of -
- The usual sequential, random, etc read/write tests
- PCMark10 (Applications Test?)
- Game load times (need suggestions on specific games that are 1. repeatable 2. measurable)
- Determining if drive performance is impacted by heat (for units that do not have a heatsink installed). Add a heatsink to see if there's a performance difference, thermal IR pictures may be doable as well.
