CrystalDiskMark and PCMark Vantage

CrystalDiskMark is a small benchmark utility for drives and enables rapid measurement of sequential and random read/write speeds. Note that CDM only supports Native Command Queuing (NCQ) with a queue depth of 32 (as noted) for the last listed benchmark score. This can skew some results in favor of controllers that also do not support NCQ.

CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 – Intel P67 Platform

VERTEX 3 120GB CRYSTALDISKMARK P67

Benchmark Results: The Vertex 3 120GB drive has a very strong showing in the read category but is noticeably slower than some of the larger capacity drives in the sequential writes but really kicks it in on the random writes.

PCMark Vantage 1.0.2.0 – Intel P67 Platform

PCMark Vantage v1.01 measures the performance of the latest PC hardware across a variety of common scenarios. PCMark Vantage supports both system level and component level benchmarking and comprises several different test suites but for the purposes of this review, we stuck with just the HDD suite. The nice thing about PCMark Vantage is that you can submit your scores online and compare against others.

VERTEX 3 120GB PCMARK VANTAGE

VERTEX 3 120GB PCMARK VANTAGE

Benchmark Results: Very consistent numbers for each component of the benchmark suite and near the top in every category which were mostly dominated by the Crucial/Micron drive.
