Power Consumption, Resume from S4 and BootRacer
BootRacer offered some insight into the drives' performance with an OS installed. Here we see the WD Black 2 Dual Drive came in at 23.5 seconds.
Resume from S4
In our custom resume from S4 testing, the WD Black 2 Dual Drive came in at 5.97 seconds.
Our custom power testing samples each drive for a period of three minutes across each workload. In order to offer more granularity we sample the power in one-second intervals. To test the power consumption of the WD Black 2 Dual Drive, we used the three-stage approach. At the drives peak we measured a touch over five watts of power consumption during sequential write. On the HDD only, peak again came in sequential write and just under four watts. In SSD only testing, we saw steady power consumption throughout the workloads, the drive peaked at 2.5 watts.
Idle power consumption for the WD Black 2 was a touch over 0.9 watts and remained there.
