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. These tests are based on real world applications that many of us use daily.

 

 

HDD1 - Windows Defender

 

HDD2 - Gaming

 

HDD3 - Windows Photo Gallery

 

HDD4 - Vista Startup

 

HDD5 - Windows Movie Maker

 

HDD6 - Windows Media Center

 

HDD7 - Windows Media Player

 

HDD8 - Application Loading

 

Here we see the Mtron MOBI just wiping the floor with the Raptor. In the first tests we see the MOBI performing close to 3 times as fast, and later tests saw a 2x performance gain. Twice the performance in simulated real world tests sounds like a good place to start for next generation hard drives.
