PCMark Vantage HDD Tests

PCMark Vantage is an objective hardware performance benchmark tool for PCs running 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7. PCMark Vantage is well suited for benchmarking any type of Microsoft Windows Vista/7 PC: from multimedia home entertainment systems and laptops, to dedicated workstations and high-end gaming rigs. Benchmark Reviews has decided to use the HDD Test Suite to demonstrate simulated real-world storage drive performance in this article.

PCMark Vantage runs eight different storage benchmarks, each with a specific purpose. Once testing is complete, results are given a PCMark score while and detailed results indicate actual transaction speeds. The 512GB Crucial MX100 SSD produced a total PCMark Vantage (secondary) HDD Test Suite score of 66055, which easily surpasses the 52762 scored by the M550. Specific speeds are reported below:

Our tests were conducted on an Intel P67-Express Sandy Bridge motherboard using the onboard native SATA 6Gb/s controller with 64-bit Windows 7. Because new drivers were used, this test is not comparable to past tests and may not be fairly compared to storage devices attached to other computer systems.

    hello,

    I was reading the review for the Crucial MX-100 512GB and noticed that the Crucial MX100 SSD Conclusion was tagged wrong in the drop down box, it was tagged as 10. Crucial M550 SD Conclusion. I would just like to bring it to your attention. Thanks.
