SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness Test

We use a Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17 gaming notebook for both tests on this page. The first is the BAPCo SYSmark 2014 SE Responsiveness Test. This test measures systems response, what makes your PC feel fast.

The 512GB Team Group T-Force Cardea II surpasses the 1,000-point mark set by an OEM version of the Samsung 850 EVO. We consider the reference line to be very responsive, and any drive that scores higher is an excellent boot drive for your PC.

We managed to cram the large heat sink Cardea II in our Lenovo notebook, but I wouldn't expect this drive to fit in many mobile systems. The drive wasn't designed for notebook use, but since it fits we tested it for battery life. The drive didn't reach five hours but managed to get very close in this power-hungry system.
