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.

Using Bapco's MobileMark 2012 Version 1.5 gives us a clear picture on notebook run time. The Silicon Power S70 is one of the better drives we've tested and gives us the second best result to date. This test uses a significant amount of idle time just like how your notebook normally runs on its battery.

In this test we're working the drive for the entire length of the test. Using Vantage's HDD test we record the power used in real time. The Silicon Power S70 clearly uses less power at peak and also has the lowest idle power as well.
