Product and Performance Information
The power and cooling claims are based on measurements versus a market available HDD. Intel® SSD D3-S4510, 960 GB and Seagate Enterprise* Performance 10K HDD 900GB 2.5” SAS 12Gbs Model ST900MM0168. Both testing a workload of 128 KB (131,072 bytes) at a Queue Depth equal to 32 sequential writes using FIO*. The benefit calculated as a function of the workload efficiency ratio by lower power ratio. Source – Intel.
