Note: In this test, we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real-world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the 15GB block is transferred. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing, and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.




We test file transfers with the drives in a notebook with C-states enabled. This shows real-world transfer performance in a notebook. It also shows that most notebooks will limit SSD performance to save power, which increases battery life.
