Application Latency and Notebook Battery Life

SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness Test


The 500GB Vulcan shattered the SATA SSD record for system responsiveness in the SYSmark 2014 SE test. The drive doesn't have the lowest latency under light workloads but has the ability to clean cells and handle background activities efficiently. This leads to a better user experience under moderate workloads like this office-focused test.

Background activities and their aggressive use cause an SSD to use more power. When a drive waits to build up dirty cells and processes the data in larger batches, the drive uses less power. When a drive is aggressive with cleanup, it consumes more power because it shuffles smaller blocks more often.

We can only assume that is why the Team Group Vulcan scores so low in our notebook battery life test using a Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17 gaming system.
