- Samsung SSD 830
Samsung sampled the 512GB version of the SSD 830 so it's unclear how much the sheer number of NAND die impacts power consumption here. At 1.22W while idle the 830 seems to draw 28% more power than the Intel SSD 510. Under load that gap drops to only 14% during sequential writes but skyrockets to 70% under random writes. Again part of this is likely due to the higher capacity. Until we get lower capacity drives it's impossible to tell how much the power consumption story will change.

Stahn Aileron - Saturday, September 24, 2011 - linkDo people seriously still do this? You think people would grow up and out of dumb habits eventually.
Mumrik - Tuesday, September 27, 2011 - linkYou'd think so, but GiantBomb even has an site achievement for getting first post (and not writing "first").
vol7ron - Friday, October 7, 2011 - linkBut shouldn't it be okay if you post w/in the minute of it listing? Or, if it is published at some ungodly hour, like 4:39AM

tipoo - Saturday, September 24, 2011 - linkBut by replying, we made the useless thread longer....So did this comment, but lets try not to in the future ;)
AT's comments do need some work though, edit button + downrank/hide option for comments like these would be miles improved by themselves.
