Chris Ramseyer at Tom’s Hardware Reviews the “Samsung PM981 NVMe SSD” using BAPCo’s SYSmark 2014 SE Benchmark (NEW “Responsiveness” Scenario & Energy Consumption feature).
According to Tom’s Hardware, “We brought in the PM961 SSD for the BAPCo SYSmark 2014 SE Responsiveness Test to see how the new OEM drive compares to the outgoing model. The new OEM drive provides slightly more responsiveness but also consumes a little more power. We know the 64-layer V-NAND uses less power than the 48-layer, so it’s natural to assume the increased power consumption comes from the controller.”
