HDD Benchmarks: PCMark Vantage

FutureMark PCMark Vantage 1.0.0.0 HDD Test Source: FutureMark

PCMark Vantage is the first objective hardware performance benchmark for PCs running 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows Vista. PCMark Vantage is perfectly suited for benchmarking any type of Windows Vista PC from multi media home entertainment systems and laptops to dedicated workstations and hi-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. Higher points are better.

Seagate's 500GB Momentus XT does well for itself compared to the other HDDs but is unable to compete directly with any SSD. Please note that the Momentus XT drive results are from the fourth sequential run of PCMark Vantage. Owing to the 4GB flash cache, the benchmark peaks in performance after about 3-4 runs.

Next up, let's see how the 500GB Seagate Momentus XT handles in Sisoft Sandra 2010.
