CrystalDiskMark and ATTO Disk Benchmark are used to benchmark the system’s integrated storage.
As you can see, it is clearly not going to win any awards for its speed.
To test the speed of the single USB 3.0 port, I plugged in an OCZ Trion 150 SSD via a SATA-to-USB 3.0 5Gbps adapter, which uses the ASMedia ASM1053 controller. We reviewed the SSD HERE, finding it delivers good speed at a budget price.
Most importantly, it is capable of saturating the USB 3.0 bus, allowing us to test the speed the single USB 3.0 port delivers. To test this, I ran both CrystalDiskMark and ATTO Disk Benchmark on the Trion 150 drive.
Thankfully, the speeds are good and indicate no issues with the USB 3.0 interface.
