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 bench marker 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 tests matter since many of the old hat ways to measure performance have become ineffective to measure true Windows performance.
The WD5000LPVT improves upon last generation, offering 17.9MB/s, over last gens 14.7MB/s in Windows Defender.
Game Load times have also improved with the LPVT showing nearly 12MB/s over just 9.5MB/s of last generation.
Windows Photo Gallery had the Scorpio Blue neck in neck with the latest offering from HGST.
Vista Startup showed a full 3MB/s improvement over the last generation BPVT.
The new Scorpio Blue, utilizing its single platter design enjoys a very welcoming 28.6MB/s in Movie Maker.
Once again, we find the LPVT fighting with the HGST 7K1000 in Media Player. The LPVT pushing out just 0.02 more at 6.57MB/s.
Loading applications we found the Scorpio Blue to be rather impressive. Again bumping the HGST 7K1000 to the side we landed at 3.85MB/s.
