4-Way SSD Round-Up, OCZ, Corsair, Kingston, ST
Next we ran the OCZ Apex SSD through a battery of tests in PCMark Vantage from Futuremark Corp. We specifically used only the HDD Test module of this benchmark suite to evaluate all of the drives we tested. Feel free to consult Futuremark's white paper on PCMark Vantage for an understanding of what each test component entails and how it calculates its measurements. For specific information on how the HDD Test module arrives at its performance measurements, we'd encourage you to read pages 35 and 36 of the white paper.
We really like PCMark Vantage's HDD Performance for its real-world application measurement approach to testing. From simple Windows Vista start-up performance to data streaming from a disk drive in a game engine and video editing with Windows Movie Maker, we feel confident that these tests best illustrate the real performance profile of our SSDs in an end user/consumer PC usage model.
Our PCMark Vantage test results fly in the face of all the others thus far. Here, the Corsair P256 puts up a dominant performance, besting all other drives by a significant margin. The Intel-based Kingston drive takes the second position, followed by OCZ and then Super Talent.
