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.

Windows users can count on Vantage to show them how a drive will perform in normal day to day usage scenarios. Here we see very respectable numbers coming from the Nova. Over the last year Indilinx was able to pull more performance out of their controllers with each new firmware release. If compared to a standard 2.5 inch platter drive designed for notebooks, the numbers would hardly even register on the charts since SSDs perform so much better in Windows tests.
