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.

HDD6 - Windows Media Center
HDD7 - Windows Media Player
HDD8 - Application Loading


The Patriot Inferno delivers some of the highest real world Windows test results for a drive today. Here we see that applications load at an incredible 212MB/s, more than double that of the RealSSD C300 128GB. The Inferno is an all around strong performer in typical Windows applications commonly used by users daily.


Since every product on the chart is an SSD, let me point out that in Application Load (dark blue on the chart), the fastest consumer desktop platter drive, the Western Digital VelociRaptor 600GB scores just 8.76MB/s in this test. Is there really anything else I need to say about the level of performance coming from the Patriot Inferno than that?
