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.




One of the reasons we haven't updated the firmware on the Fujitsu F100 is because this drive delivers an amazing amount of notebook battery life. The firmware we found on the Apotop S3C 240GB was released after the firmware we're testing today, and the notebook battery life wasn't as good. Many of the low-cost SSDs on the market end up installed in notebooks. This fact makes low-cost SSD notebook battery life a bit more important than the high performance SSDs that are more often installed in high performance desktops.



Power Limited Performance




In a notebook on battery power, your system reduces clock speeds and system bus speeds. This creates what I call a power-restricted environment. Most SSDs perform about the same with the system busses reduced, as you can see in this chart.
