From the looks of it, they really pushed the [B]burn[/B]-in testing on that 2500 series…




10W idle seems rather excessive for an SSD, considering most HDDs don’t even use this during heavy seeking.

Then again, I’m sure anyone who can afford these SSDs once they launch will have no problem paying for the power consumption. :slight_smile:


Maybe it is due to poor effectiveness with the PCIe type drives.


Here is a thought for ya… LSI would, of course, stick to their own RAID controller so look at the present 2308 which is on the Scorpion…very intensive writes and not so intensive reads and abs low read iops…

Looks like a 2308 on this as well… The high power will be a given with that performance… Even the 2008 we saw in the Kingspec review was pushing something like 18W active at speeds just below:

The difference with the 2008 was that it had great read and write performance and wasn’t only read intensive. This is recentlky shown in the newer LSI products as well.


I get your reasoning there, and I agree. What Seán and I was talking about was the high idle consumption. I can see the need for more juice on higher performance, but is it necessary to maintain such high levels when it is idle?

There are Sony VAIO Pro 13 and Apple MacBook laptops (or ultrabooks) with these PCIe SSDs. Surely the latest MacBook Air lasts long enough.

Only thing I can guess is that it’s a type error.
