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.

The 2TB and 3TB Seagate Barracuda XT drives perform pretty much identically to one another in PCMark Vantage. The 2TB Seagate Barracuda XT can boast Gaming and Photo Importing performance slightly better than a pair of WD 1TB drives in RAID 0! Head to head, the 2TB Seagate Barracuda XT out performs the Western Digital 1TB WD1001FALS drive. The small-capacity SSDs clearly dominate the speed front.
