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.

The daily use tasks are tested with Vantage and as you can see the BP4 does well here. The performance isn't groundbreaking like Vector or the 840 Pro, but the price isn't anything like those products either. The BP4 delivers solid performance at a very nice budget price.

 

Looking at the charts, we should have placed the Samsung 840 (non-Pro) just under the BP4 to get a better look at how these two drives compare. It's amazing to think that a company the size of My Digital is able to take on a giant like Samsung in the mainstream market and come out ahead in performance. Then again, My Digital also played a role in the MDSSD TweakTown Chris Ramseyer Signature Edition SSD, still the fastest SSD on the market today.
