PCMark Vantage v1.01 is the first objective hardware performance benchmark for PCs running 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows Vista. PCMark Vantage is perfectly suited for benchmarking any type of Microsoft Windows Vista PC from multimedia home entertainment systems and laptops to dedicated workstations and hi-end gaming rigs. Regardless of whether the benchmarker is an artist or an IT Professional, PCMark Vantage shows the user where their system soars or falls flat, and how to get the most performance possible out of their hardware. The PCMark Vantage benchmark was run in 64-bit mode for the results shown below.
Benchmark Results: The Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB SSD had an overall score of 41,513 in PCMark Vantage when run in 64-bit mode and the individual test results can be seen in the image above. The drive started out having great performance numbers, but in specific tests HDD 7 and HDD 8 the C300 took a major performance hit. We ran the benchmarks a few times and the results were not significantly different.
Comparison Chart Results: The Crucial C300 led the group in two of the tests that we picked to highlight, but fell way short in the application loading test as you can see from the chart above.
