Looking at the three windows power modes, and the impact on SSD performance

Closer to a true high end PC.

So time to see how what differences there
are for the three power options, this time the ADATA SU800 will be the SSD of
choice for this test. Let’s start again with Anvil’s benchmark.

Anvil’s Benchmark.

First the read tests.

Then we move to the write test results.

Here is the total score.

Also let’s get a clearer view of how much
impact there is in performance, comparing the point total result that Anvil’s Benchmark
gives.

Again we see that the power saving mode has
an impact on both the read and write performance of the ADATA SU800. Once more it
looks like the balanced and the high performance modes are the best options to
use.

The write results.

Again we see a drop in speed, especially with
the 4K test, and the difference between the three power modes is large.

 

Let’s head to the next page and look at
the result on a Dell Inspiron laptop.
