PCMark Vantage and 7
For trace based testing, we are replacing the outdated PCMark 05 results with a pair of newer versions of the same. PCMark Vantage and PCMark 7 results will be included moving forward. We are also running PCMark 8 on samples as we receive them, however we do not yet have sufficient comparative data to make a useful chart. Vantage results tend to be higher as they show more of a raw / peak type of result measured during the trace, while 7 shows more of an averaged value over the time duration of the trace. Translation: Vantage shows max throughput while 7 shows how that throughput impacts overall system performance. You can easily tell the difference by looking at the results of the HDD (VelociRaptor), which scores higher under 7 since the overall system is usually doing other things in addition to accessing storage.
The 850 PRO sits among the top contenders in trace testing.
