Test system and test procedures
For this review I will be using a PC with
the following configuration.
- Motherboard: ASUS X99-A
- CPU: Intel
i7-5820K @ 4.4GHz
- RAM: Crucial
Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400
- VGA: MSI
Gaming GTX960 2GB
- HDD1: Kingston
HyperX Fury 240GB
Trying to keep my testing methods as simple
as possible and at the same time repeatable on various systems. I will run two
simple benchmarks, ATTO and CrystalDiskMark, as both tools can
give a good impression of how the drive performs. This time I will be running
my tests with NTFS and also the default file system that the drive comes
There will also be some real life tests,
simple tasks such as copy/paste of various files. As a source to store my files
I will be using 10GB of ram, and I will also be testing the flash drive with various
consumer devices such as TV’s, Laptops, and a micro HiFi.
As usual I will be starting my tests with
ATTO, so let’s see if a different file-system will improve the write numbers, and
how this USB Flash drive performs.
The results are good. The drive was able to
reach 80MB/Sec when it comes to write speed, but only close to 140MB/Sec for the
No surprises here, 130MB/Sec read and
82MB/Sec for the write speed, again a good result overall.
At first look the results are very good,
especially for the write results, but read speed is lower than the 150MB/Sec
that we see quoted on the box.
Let’s move to the next page for some
real world tests…
