Corsair Neutron Series GTX 480GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Power Testing

Corsair's lock on Link_A_Media Device's controller is holding. We've seen the 240GB capacity sizes of the Neutron and Neutron GTX, and now we get our turn with the massive 480GB drive.

MobileMark 2012 1.5 is an application-based benchmark that reflects usage patterns of business users in the areas of office productivity, media creation and media consumption. Unlike benchmarks that only measure battery life, MobileMark 2012 measures battery life and performance simultaneously, showing how well a system design addresses the inherent tradeoffs between performance and power management.

We have a couple of versions of this test and a couple different variations on how we'll display the data. As with the other new tests, we're still building a database, but this test will stay.

The Corsair Neutron GTX 480GB pulls more power than most of the other SSDs we've tested so far.

 

Eventually we'll use this test to measure performance per watt with PC Mark's performance data. Futuremark has a new PCMark slated for release later in 2012, so we're at their mercy for an update.
