PCMark Vantage is the first objective hardware performance benchmark for PCs running 32 and 64 bit versions of Microsoft Windows Vista. PCMark Vantage is perfectly suited for benchmarking any type of Microsoft Windows Vista PC from multimedia home entertainment systems and laptops to dedicated workstations and high-end gaming rigs. Regardless of whether the benchmarker is an artist or an IT Professional, PCMark Vantage shows the user where their system soars or falls flat, and how to get the most performance possible out of their hardware. PCMark Vantage is easy enough for even the most casual enthusiast to use yet supports in-depth, professional industry grade testing.


FutureMark has developed a good set of hard disk tests for their PCMark Vantage Suite. Windows users can count on Vantage to show them how a drive will perform in normal day to day usage scenarios. For most users these are the tests that matter since many of the old hat ways to measure performance have become ineffective to measure true Windows performance.

Given the high performance we've seen thus far it doesn't surprise us to see the Neutron drives making a run for the top performance crown in real-world testing. The LAMD Amber architecture doesn't slow down with incompressible data nor does it slow down for anything else we've hit it with. Looking over the chart we see a couple of tests where the Neutron drives are beat by another drive in a specific area, but no other consumer SSD we've tested is able to put it all together as well as the Neutron drives do.


That leads us into our next area, which model is actually better for client workload, the Amber / INFT 25nm sync flash of the Amber / 24nm Toshiba Toggle? So far the two are very close together in everything except single request write speed with sequential data. Let's start to get serious about that question.
