With the Dbench benchmark the Optane 900p returned to the top spot while the WD_BLACK SN850 held a strong second place finish.

Likewise if running any PostgreSQL server off this consumer drive for a development workstation, SOHO setup, or other configuration, the WD_BLACK SN850 was a strong second place performer just behind the Intel Optane 900p.

The WD_BLACK SN850 also performed well for the MariaDB database server too.

To little surprise at this stage, the WD_BLACK SN850 also performed ahead of the other PCIe 4.0 NVMe solid-state drives with SQLite.
