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 OCZ Vertex 2 SSD had an overall score of 43182 in PCMark Vantage when run in 64-bit mode and the individual test results can be seen in the image above. These are very solid performance numbers!
Comparison Chart Results: The OCZ Vertex 2 Pro never came out, so that makes the OCZ Vertex 2 the fastest hard drive that we have ever benchmarked in PCMark Vantage! OCZ has done a great job with the firmware on the SF-1200 controller as it is able to perform at the same level as the SF-1500 controller found in the Vertex Limited Edition!
