We will be testing the Supersonic flash drive at both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 speeds. This will give you an idea of the advantage of using a USB 3.0 drive. Unfortunately we do not have another USB 3.0 flash drive to compare the Supersonic to.
Our first test is HD Tune Pro. We ran the read benchmark.
Next up we have the Flash Memory toolkit. It has a low-level benchmark built in.
Now on to Sandra, we ran both the Physical Disks Benchmark and and Removable Storage Benchmark.
