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.
After getting off to a rocky start with our PCMark Vantage testing, the Samsung 470 drive bounced back posting mostly strong numbers across the board. It still wasn't able to keep pace with OCZ's Vertex 2 (SandForce) drive, but OCZ's is also rated quite a bit higher than Samsung's unit.
