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.
The SM2246EN barely sips power, even in large capacity sizes. Part of that comes from the 4-channel design and part of it also comes from the advanced sleep states. The controller can even go all the way down to DEVSLP to conserve the notebook battery.
Of all the drives on the chart, the Force LX delivered the most notebook battery life. The orange bar is a typical HDD currently shipping in several notebooks on the market. Some of the drives on the chart actually use more power than HDDs.
Power Limited Performance
MobileMark also gives us a performance score. With the notebook in a low power mode, the SATA, CPU and PCIe links are crippled. In this performance test, we're looking for efficiency in this crippled power state. Most of the drives perform very close to each other.
The Hyper II, the only consumer SLC SSD on the chart does perform a little better, but you're paying a premium for a small amount of space and a small performance bump in a low power environment. The HDD is clearly the slowest drive on the chart, no surprises there.
