PCMark Vantage HDD Tests

PCMark Vantage is an objective hardware performance benchmark tool for PCs running 32- and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7. PCMark Vantage is well suited for benchmarking any type of Microsoft Windows Vista/7 PC: from multimedia home entertainment systems and laptops, to dedicated workstations and high-end gaming rigs. Benchmark Reviews has decided to use the HDD Test Suite to demonstrate simulated real-world storage drive performance in this article.

PCMark Vantage runs eight different storage benchmarks, each with a specific purpose. Once testing is complete, results are given a PCMark score while and detailed results indicate actual transaction speeds. The 240GB CoreRise Comay Venus Pro 3 SSD produced a total PCMark Vantage (secondary) HDD Test Suite score of 51976, which are among the best of any SATA-based storage device we've tested. Specific test speeds reported below:

Our tests were conducted on an Intel P67-Express Sandy Bridge motherboard using the onboard native SATA 6Gb/s controller with 64-bit Windows 7. Performance results are displayed in the chart below:

In the next section, I share my review conclusion and final product rating.

Pretty amazing. How long did it take for storage devices to catch up to the SATA 3 standard? Now after only a couple of years, storage devices are already near saturation for SATA6. LOL totally amazing. This thing can transfer 30GB/minute.

It will still be a wait for USB 3 devices to catch up to the USB 3.0 saturation rate so we can see the benefit of USB3 to something as fast as this device. I can't wait to see CF flash or something similar come into line with the USB3 theoretical. Most cards never got past a little over half of the USB2 specs.

Olin,

You say this drive is expensive, but I didn't see a price in the review.

I don't think now is a good time to be entering any 'expensive' SSD into the market.

Yesterday I saw a sub 140 240GB Vertex3 in the wild. I paid more than that (170) for my 128GB Samsung 830 only 6 months ago.
