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.

I love breaking world records and that is exactly what I was able to do with the PCmark Vantage HD Test. The total score was 80,997, a new world record! - The next best score on the ORB is a mere 57,118 with an unknown RAID array running on an Areca controller.

 

The ioDrive clearly outperforms the fastest RAID arrays available on the market, at least in the enthusiast market that tests with PCMark Vantage, so millions of users. Granted, many of the tests performed in PCMark Vantage will never be run on the server ioDrive, but the follow up drive built for the consumer market will. Let's now have a look at the server workloads.
