Our workstation I/O efficiency test works similarly: we run IOmeter using the workstation I/O benchmark pattern, and track the average power for each device. We then calculate workstation I/O performance per watt.
Since all of the new drives are rather poor when it comes to random I/Os, and even worse for random writes, none does well in our workstation I/O efficiency test.
