Mtron SSD 32 GB: Performance with a Catch

Application Benchmarks

Power Consumption

The power consumption results aren't impressive. In fact, the Mtron Flash SSD requires at least twice the power than the Samsung or SanDisk drives. Be prepared for a marginal reduction in battery runtime if you install the Mtron drive into your notebook. For high-performance desktops and servers, however, this power requirement is still amazingly low. Compared to the 15-20 W of a 3.5" SAS hard drive at 15,000 RPM; the little drives by Mtron deliver much more I/O performance per Watt.
