SanDisk Extreme II 120GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Power Testing

SanDisk Extreme II 120GB SSD Review

We're starting our SanDisk Extreme II review coverage with the 120GB capacity size. Later today we'll publish reviews of the 240GB and 480GB, but the 120GB size has more talking points and shows why SanDisk now has the most advanced NAND on the market today. (NASDAQ:SNDK)

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.

In our battery life test, the Extreme II 120GB delivered significantly more notebook time on battery power than both the 840 Pro and Vector. The drive fell a little behind the only retail 2.5" LSI SandForce B02 stepping we have in our lab, but the battery life was very close to it.

 

This is a big win for SanDisk considering all of the work that went into improving SF-2281's battery life. We generally don't see products based on Marvell hardware getting anywhere close to this level.

Here we see that the how Extreme II comes so close to B02 levels. B02, a.k.a ADATA SX900 128GB has lower idle power consumption, but Extreme II isn't far behind.
