Toshiba XG6 1TB SSD Review

To test real life performance of a drive we use a mix of folder/file types and by using the FastCopy utility (which gives a time as well as MB/s result) we record the performance of drive reading from & writing to a 256GB Samsung SSD850 PRO.

100GB data file.
60GB iso image.
60GB Steam folder – 29,521 files.
50GB File folder – 28,523 files.
12GB Movie folder – 24 files (mix of Blu-ray and 4K files).
10GB Photo folder – 621 files (mix of png, raw and jpeg images).
10GB Audio folder – 1,483 files (mix of mp3 and .flac files).
5GB (1.5bn pixel) photo.


The XG6 deals with the large file sizes in our real life file transfer tests very efficiently, much more so than the small files that make up the 50GB file, 60GB Steam and 10GB Audio folder transfers.

To get a measure of how much faster PCIe NVMe drives are than standard SATA SSD's we use the same files but transfer to and from a 512GB Toshiba OCZ RD400.


It's the same story with the NVMe to NVMe transfer tests with the drive handling larger files much more easily than the small ones. Best performances from this test came from the 5GB Photo transfer (2,551MB/s) and the 12GB Movie Folder (2,544MB/s).
