PCMark Vantage is the first objective hardware performance benchmark for PCs running 32 and 64 bit versions of Microsoft Windows VistaÂ. 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.

It really wasn't fair for us to run this test in a compromised state knowing that the new firmware is right around the corner. So, to even everything up we're publishing two MDSSD SMART tests in the same chart. At the very top is the performance you will see after the fixed FW comes out (if SF didn't have to slow the drive down). Just below the Fixed FW Simulation is our standard test with Vantage ran as it would be during our testing cycle.

The Fixed FW Simulation scored just over 85,000 Marks which is only possible with the 5 series FW. Our normal run with the TRIM compromised FW scored just over 71,000 Marks. Firmware 3.3.2 and 3.3.4 were on the MemoRight and RunCore SandForce mSATA drives and score between 73K and 75K.
