SYSmark 2014 SE System Responsiveness Test

With an operating system and the applications used to run the SYSmark 2014 SE suite, the 2TB Patriot P200 scores one as the lowest SATA SSD we've tested in a number of years in the responsiveness test. This is why we feel this drive is better suited for mass storage as a secondary drive rather than your boot drive.

On paper, DRAMless SSDs appear to have a power advantage over drive featuring the high consumption component. DRAM requires constant power to hold data so even when the SSD is in a low power state, the DRAM is a drain. For several years leading up to the introduction of these drives coming to market, SSD controller designers claimed notebook battery improvements.

We quickly learned with shipping products that the lack of a cache for the translation map meant the controller and flash had to work longer to write data. This affected the background activity completion time, the data movement that you don't see but happens to keep the drive fast and long lasting.

The 2TB P200 is one of the few SATA SSDs unable to deliver 5 hours of office productivity in our Lenovo Ideapad Y700-17 system.
