NVMe SSD power testing

NVME SSD power testing: I'd like to find out what the maximum sustained wattage for NVME drives is. 2.5W has been quoted as being safe, but I've tested 2.7W extensively without issues. Please try the following test if your power state is over 2.7W:

  • Run off battery.
  • Set your brightness level to maximum.
  • Apply a sustained CPU load on all cores but one.
  • Run 'sudo hdparm -t /dev/nvme0' continuously for 5 minutes.

The test passes if your PBP does not crash (red-green blinking power led). I will write a script later to automate the test, but for now these instructions should suffice. If you think this would work better in a forum thread, let me know and I'll start one. I hope to see some of your findings! --Natrox (talk) 03:58, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
