PCMark Vantage – HDD Suite


For these tests we will be using FutureMark’s
PCMark Vantage. This suite of real world test applications is highly regarded,
as one of the most comprehensive ways of testing a computer’s performance in
the real world. The PCMark Vantage test application also includes an
HDD/SSD/USB Flash suite of testing procedures, designed to fully test the
performance of an HDD/SSD to its limits.

PC Mark 8 – HDD Suite

We have built quite a close relationship
with FutureMark software, the authors of the PCMark PC benchmarking software
that we use in our tests. I decided I would use PCMark Vantage as stopgap
measure until the more up-to-date PCMark 8 benchmarking suite became available.
I’m pleased to say that PCMark 8 is now available, and it gives me great
pleasure to introduce you all to the results obtained by this new ‘real world’
benchmarking suite.

I will describe the basic way that each
test is carried out, above the graph for each test.
