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 the marketing material, Toshiba talks about their power efficiency. In our testing, only three other drives delivered better battery life results.

In this test we see how the THNSNF manages to deliver such long battery life. The drive barely breaks away from the idle power draw. When writing random data the THNSNF spikes like most other SSDs, but the sequential reads and writes are very close to the idle power.
