The OCZ Octane Review (512GB)by Anand Lal Shimpi on November 23, 2011 12:00 PM EST
As we saw in our Samsung SSD 830 review, power consumption of these 512GB drives can be quite high. The Octane is no exception. At idle the Octane uses a little less power than the 830, but still more than any of the other smaller drives we have:
Under load the Octane is competitive with sequential write power draw (likely due to its suboptimal sequential write speed in Iometer), but during heavy random writes the drive consumes noticeably more power. We can't draw many conclusions here compared to drives at other capacities, but at least compared to the Samsung SSD 830 the Octane draws less power.
