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 480GB HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD produced a total PCMark Vantage (secondary) HDD Test Suite score of 71411, which nearly matches performance with the Samsung SSD 850 PRO. 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.

    Question…Under the “Pros” section there is a bullet point for “Low power consumption may extend battery life”. Specifically, what battery may have its life extended using the Predator PCIe M.2 SSD?

    1. Olin Coles

      The PCIe card is an adapter for systems without a native M.2 port. Specifically, both notebooks and tablets use M.2 storage devices.

  2. David Ramsey

    Is it bootable?

    1. Olin Coles

      Yes. M.2 and mSATA are just like SATA SSDs.
