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.

Our first real world condition Windows tests indicate that the PCIe SSD from PhotoFast shows great gains in some tests, but in others it shows average solid state drive performance. In many of the tests the PhotoFast G-Monster V5, a RAID 0 two drive version of the same V3 drives used in the PCIe version, is able to outperform the PCIe version in many of the tests. The V5 costs 999 USD for 256GB of capacity. We will get into this more in the conclusion.
