In today's article in ZDNet they report high-end SSD's use up to twice as much current as comparable HDDs - with an accompanying significant increase in operating temperatures.
FYI

I find this to be mostly true as well.

Thanks!

I agree, maybe in high end gaming laptops but I think you would see them more in desktop systems...

They are talking 25 Watt hard drives... For desktops with big fans. Not laptops.

Find an SSD for a laptop that runs 25 watts and I'll show you a melted laptop!

Thanks for fixing the link Blair.
Interesting. I pasted the same link from the clipboard into here and the Panasonic TB Forum, worked fine there but not here. ???

Interesting. I wonder which ones run at 25W. I have a Crucial 1TB in a small external USB3 enclosure, passively cooled. It gets warm but not hot, and runs fine from the 500mA (2.5W) that a USB2 port provides. Granted, it's a MLC drive, and probably not an "enterprise" model. If it's throttling, I can't tell, as it smokes the spinning platters on every USB3 machine I've plugged it into.

I haven't felt excessive heat on any of my other laptops (or my Toughpad) that have SSDs, either.
