PCMark Vantage HDD

We really like PCMark Vantage's HDD Performance module for its pseudo real-world application measurement approach to testing. PCMark Vantage offers a trace-based measurement of system response times under various scripted workloads of traditional client / desktop system operation. From simple Windows start-up performance to data streaming from a disk drive in a game engine and video editing with Windows Movie Maker, we feel more comfortable that these tests reasonably illustrate the performance profile of SSDs in an end-user / consumer PC usage model.

This series of Vantage tests will stress read performance in real-world usage models, with a broad mix of sequential and random read transactions of both small and large file sizes.

The new Intel SSD 320 series drive performs well in the trace-based PCMark Vantage tests, trading victories with all of the drives, except for the SandForce SF-2000 series based OCZ Vertex 3s.
