Sandisk Ultra 3D & WD Blue 3D 1TB SSD review

First 3D NAND-SSDs of Sandisk and WD tested

By


Power consumption

The power consumption of our SSDs is measured using a BTO W540EU laptop based on an Intel Core i3 3120M CPU and the Intel H77M chipset. We measure the power consumption of SSDs both when idle and during a 4k random write and 1 MB sequential write workload. 

The power consumption of the Sandisk and WD is about the same. Under load they are clearly more efficient than the Samsung drives, but then again they are also slightly slower.
