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.

I dislike it when I'm wrong, but can admit it when things don't go as I thought they would. In PCMark's Vantage we see that the real world performance of the 2.5 and 3.5" Vertex 2 is nearly identical. I really thought we would see the 3.5" version outperforming the 2.5" model since it uses more flash, but that wasn't the case. The good news is that desktop users won't take a performance hit and get native form factor support, making for an easier installation.
