Review: Sandforce SF 1200 based

PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage features a nice set of HDD tests, and they can just as easily be applied to SSDs and paint a general picture of the drive’s everyday operation. HDD test suite comprises of 8 tests which touch upon pretty much all facets of working with a computer – from multimedia to operating system load times, with average performance results listed at the end.

HDD results show Vertex 2 100GB’s hefty advantage over the old Intel X-25M 80GB G1 (firmware 8820), but PCMark Vantage’s overall performance results still favor Intel’s drive, which utilizes its parallel architecture in the best possible way. Still, OCZ’s Vertex 2 is better in sequential writing, where Intel is limited to 80 MB/s, so Vertex 2 scored better in HDD suite.
