Application loading times
Adobe Fireworks CS3
There is very little difference in tangible performance between

Corel PaintShop Pro 12
Again, I doubt anyone could tell difference from the fastest

Games loading times

Now let’s head to the next page where we will see how the
Samsung 750 EVO 500GB SSD performs in PC Mark 8…..
