CrystalDiskMark 3.0 Tests

CrystalDiskMark 3.0 is a file transfer and operational bandwidth benchmark tool from Crystal Dew World that offers performance transfer speed results using sequential, 512KB random, and 4KB random samples. For our test results chart below, the 4KB 32-Queue Depth read and write performance was measured using a 1000MB space. CrystalDiskMark requires that an active partition be set on the drive being tested, and all drives are formatted with NTFS on the Intel P67 chipset configured to use AHCI-mode. Benchmark Reviews uses CrystalDiskMark to illustrate operational IOPS performance with multiple threads. In addition to our other tests, this benchmark allows us to determine operational bandwidth under heavy load.

CrystalDiskMark uses compressed data in its benchmark tests, so sequential file transfer speeds appear lower compared to those tested with other tools using uncompressed data. This section concentrates on operational IOPS performance using compressed data.

When we move back to incompressible data once again the Patriot Supersonic Magnum takes the lead with a 296.5MB/s read speed and a 143MB/s write speed. Again, the random read and write speeds are abysmal, unable to break the 2MB/s for either reads or writes.

In the next section, Benchmark Reviews tests transfer rates using AIDA64 Disk Benchmark.

$300 usd for a thumb drive ? they have got to be kidding . maybe if it was a terabyte or so i would look at it . my guess is that hard drives and thumb drives will give way to solid state motherboard cards with greater performance than thunderbolt and with capacities in the petaflop region ten years from today .

I don't know what you have to be confused about. They charge $1.17 Per GB, pretty much the same as all other USB3.0 flash drives on the market.
