OCZ Summit 250GB SATA2 SSD

PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage
 
PCMark Vantage may sound like potentially the most 'synthetic' benchmark on the market, but this couldn't be further from the truth. In a whitepaper published by Futuremark (developers of 3DMark and PCMark) they describe how PCMark mimics actual PC usage by performing application launches, web browsing, video playback, photo editing, file searching, and other day-to-day tasks. This potentially makes PCMark Vantage the most 'real world' benchmark of them all, and therefore we will be breaking down the HDD Suite benchmark into its various sections in the graphs to give you the whole picture.
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Results Analysis
 
The OCZ Summit and Vertex were evenly matched, with perhaps the Summit just squeezing out on top in a couple of tests. However, the Summit fell short in the media department, falling well behind the OCZ Vertex in both media player and movie maker tests. Worst of all was the media centre test where the Summit finished lmiddle of the pack.. This is possibly an anomoly though as throughout the other tests, no such problems were encountered.
 
Let's have a look at some real world tests...

The OCZ Vertex set a very high standard two months ago but suffered mediocre write speeds. Can the Summit SSD make up the deficit? Find out in our latest in-depth review...

Yeah I hear ya on the price. Still when people are paying £100 for 30GB I guess it's not so bad lol especially when you consider this is no 'run of the mill' drive.Quote
