PCMark Vantage: With this benchmark, I will be running the hard drive test suite. The measurement for the hard drive suite will be the total score, then the scoring for each test will be broken down. There are a total of eight hard drive tests within PCMark Vantage and all eight will be run to gauge the performance of each drive tested.
The SATA 6Gb/s Barracuda XT 3 TB drive delivers a higher level of performance in PCMark Vantage than the other mechanical drives. Again, the addition of an SSD into the comparison chart skews the results, but it does give a valid comparison.
