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. Windows users can count on Vantage to show them how a drive will perform in normal day to day usage scenarios. For most users these are the tests that matter since many of the old hat ways to measure performance have become ineffective to measure true Windows performance.

HDD5 - Windows Movie Maker
HDD6 - Windows Media Center
HDD7 - Windows Media Player
HDD8 - Application Loading

 

Here we finally get a look at the real world numbers and see that when comparing the RunCore Pro V to the OCZ Vertex 2 E(xtended) drive, the two are able to battle it out evenly with one each taking a few wins from the other.

 

These are the tests that show your coming day to day tasks inside Windows and when it comes to the 100 to 128GB category, the SandForce SF-1200 has been dominant in many of the tests and the Application Loading test that most of us want to see very high numbers in the SandForce drives deliver the best results in this capacity class.
