Application Latency and Notebook Battery Life

SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness Test

Mushkin changed something in the design that affects the cache system of the Pilot-E compared to the SX8200 Pro and EX950. In our responsiveness test taken from the BAPCo SYSmark 2014 SE software, the drive trails the two other SM2262EN drives by quite a bit. The performance inconsistency from the PCMark 8 Extended Storage Test was the precursor to this conclusion, but we also saw a few differences in performance in the synthetic performance tests.

Even though we've spotted some small differences in performance, the Pilot-E still delivers more than 5-hours of battery life in our Lenovo Y700-17 gaming notebook. This is about average for NVMe SSDs shipping today.
