About PCMark Vantage
PCMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed for Windows Vista offering one-click simplicity for casual users and detailed, professional grade testing for industry, press and enthusiasts.
A PCMark score is a measure of your computer’s performance across a variety of common tasks such as viewing and editing photos, video, music and other media, gaming, communications, productivity and security.
From desktops and laptops to workstations and gaming rigs, by comparing your PCMark Vantage score with other similar systems you can find the hardware and software bottlenecks that stop you getting more from your PC.

PCMark Vantage aims to shed a little more insight into real life performance of your computer hardware by semi-synthetic means -- and all insight is good, right? The great thing about standardized tests is anyone can repeat them and get very similar results, given identical hardware. Well, I am not going to narrate the stuff above in detail, because we all know graphs are there for a very good reason. As you can see in our graphs above, here is where the Patriot Pyro 120GB can regain some honor. Fundamentally, its numbers are very close to what the OCZ Agility 3 240GB is producing, with the pair frequently trading spots on the charts. Again, if we measure the Patriot Pyro 120GB against the OCZ Agility 3 120GB rather than the 240GB in the graphs above, the performance is going to be much closer.
