Monster Digital Daytona 240GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Power Testing

Monster Digital Daytona 240GB SSD Review

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.

Daytona does much better than we expected in our notebook power test. The performance was around the middle of modern SSDs and within a few seconds away from the Intel 520.
