Lenovo T440 - Notebook Power Testing with DEVSLP and Windows 8.1 Pro

 

 

Nearly all of the performance tests run on the desktop system, but we use a Lenovo T440 to run the power tests. The T440 is the latest addition to our client SSD test lab, and allows us to test the notebook battery life offered by a SSD with advanced features like DEVSLP enabled.

Nothing from our initial performance tests caused us concern. The sequential write performance peaked at 500 MB/s, which is a bit higher than Plextor's specifications that were most likely recorded with a queue depth of 32.
