Vantage is one of the ways that gives you a good idea on how the storage drives perform in a specific scenario: Windows Defender, Gaming, Importing pictures to windows photo gallery, Application loading and few more tests to come.


The drive is much quicker in specific test scenarios such as importing pictures, video editing and Windows media players. Others- except gaming seems to be taking minor advantage as well. Now that 1TB platter lesser drive is giving you this boost, I would really to see how 1TB drive now performs.


Then again, performance isn’t close to decent enough to be using this as a Primary drive, but makes more sense to use this if you want to stream via NAS. I am more inclined to test this drive with RAID on a NAS more than 3TB.
