Results: AS SSD, PCMark Vantage

AS SSD

Next up is AS SSD which is usually the most punishing test of all with its incompressible data.

And the Copy benchmark:

Again we see results which are excellent overall. The SandForce controller struggles, however, with the incompressible data, but the Copy results are very encouraging.

PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage is suited for benchmarking any type of PC from multimedia home entertainment systems and laptops to dedicated workstations and high-end gaming rigs. We’ll use the Disk Drive Suite here since it very closely approximates real world tests and results. This could also be considered the most important benchmark when it comes to directly comparing one drive to another. Great performance here is what counts.

Another positive result with this test which approximates more real world usage, as the V300 hits nearly 70,000. This is satisfactory, though not stellar, but this result indicates the V300 is certainly a capable day-to-day OS drive, echoing what we saw in Crystal Disk Mark.
