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 get our first look at real world performance numbers. Like we observed in the STR tests, the V Series drives are around half the speed of today's latest and greatest drives in real world conditions. This is still fast enough to best the fastest 7,200 RPM platter based notebook drives.
