The Transcend JetDrive 850 960GB NVMe SSD is behind in all CPU tests, but it’s within margin or error. We tested three times for each and collected similar results, and took the best scores for each.

We are confident that the JetDrive 850 SSD doesn’t impact CPU performance, and in everyday applications, you are not going to notice a “within margin” performance differences, either higher or lower.
