PNY CS2030 NVMe M.2 240GB SSD Review


Read Bandwidth

For this benchmark, HDTach was used. It shows the potential read speed which you are likely to experience with these hard drives. The long test was run to give a slightly more accurate picture. We don’t put much stock in Burst speed readings and thus we no longer included it. The most important number is the Average Speed number. This number will tell you what to expect from a given drive in normal, day to day operations. The higher the average the faster your entire system will feel.


Write Performance

For this benchmark HD Tune Pro was used. To run the write benchmark on a drive, you must first remove all partitions from that drive and then and only then will it allow you to run this test. Unlike some other benchmarking utilities the HD Tune Pro writes across the full area of the drive, thus it easily shows any weakness a drive may have.

The average read and write speed of this rather small drive is phenomenal. Even when compared to much larger versions of the Toshiba RD400 and Intel 750, this Phison PS5007-based drive is at the top of the charts. While we do not put too much stock in sequential file performance, this is nevertheless a great first impression.
