News 3DMark Releases New Gaming Benchmark Designed for SSDs

Meanwhile, in the real world, the difference between those scores probably amounts to about 2-3 seconds load time.
And that still depends on how good the rest of the computer is.

But yeah, the tests they had seem kind of silly. I would've preferred testing a scenario where the storage drive has to stream data while the game is running.

Take what free programs (Crystal Disk Mark, AS SSD, etc) give for free, add on a meaningless "proprietary rating", charge $3, and people will buy it...And that's $3 if you already own 3DMark, it's not retroactively included. As Steam lists it, it's DLC.

I just hope reputable review sites like TH do NOT start using this as a measure of performance...

Also, in the real world, what counts is how fast an SSD can load a scene or new assets in real time, which is the kind of work they will be doing in the very near future (Ratchet and Clank and Unreal 5 demo already do it).
