PCMark 7 Results

PCMark 7 is a benchmarking suite from FutureMark that evaluates the performance of Windows 7 machines. It tests a wide range workloads and aspects of the system ranging from computation, image and video manipulation and storage. We’ll be looking solely at the storage test here.

The Vertex 460 only managed a slightly better score than the Vertex 450 - just 36 points which translates to an improvement of just 0.0067%. If we look at the breakdown of the results, we can see that their performance across all the scenarios are just about the same, with the OCZ Vertex 460 taking the slightest of leads in most of them. And again, we see that the Vertex 460 has come behind the Vector 150. It seems that the slower clocked controller has indeed prevented the Vertex 460 from ever outperforming its more prestigious stablemate.
