PCMark Vantage (Cont.)
Our next series of Vantage tests will stress write performance a bit more. Applications like video editing, streaming and recording are not what we would call a strong suit for the average SSD, due to their high mix of random write transactions.
Interestingly enough, Intel's 310 SSD compared much more favorably in this round of PCMark Vantage tests, not only against the X25-M, but also compared to every other drive not belonging to OCZ. That's more than a bit surprising considering the comparatively low write speed rating.
