4. PCMark05

PCMark05 is an application-based benchmarks and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark05 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results. As far as possible, PCMark05 uses public domain applications whose source code can be freely examined by any user.

PCMark05 includes 4 categorized suites for benchmarking your computer. These include CPU, Graphics, Memory and a Hard Disk Drive benchmark. In our case, we selected only the Hard Disk Drive benchmark.

As expected, the WD2500JS SATA II earned the most PCMarks, although the WD3000JD isn't that far behind.

The test results, more analytically:

HDD Test Suite WD2500JS (SATA II) WD3000JD (SATA)
XP Startup (MB/sec) 9.781 8.628
Application Loading (MB/sec) 8.064 7.255
General Usage (MB/sec) 6.349 5.692
Virus Scan (MB/sec) 74.975 66.888
File Write (MB/sec) 57.737 57.201

Now let's move on to the last page and the conclusion of the SATA II vs SATA 1.0 review.
