Corsair Neutron GTX 480GB SSD Review

We perform our power consumption test by installing two digital USB multimeters working as ammeters on the +5V and +12V power lines connected to the drives, checking their current drain at idle and while stressed.

Unsurprisingly, the 480GB version of the Neutron GTX consumes a little more energy than the Neutron 240GB model, as well as most other SSDs. Capacity does have an impact on the overall energy consumption of any SSD. However, the difference is miniscule and should not translate to more than a few minutes of battery life per 4-5 hours runtime.
