We test the USB 3.0 performance on the MSI system with one of our fastest portable flash drives – the Patriot SuperSonic Magnum 256GB. We reviewed this back in February, check it out over here.
Performance via the USB 3.0 controller is very strong, peaking at over 316 MB/s in the read test. We couldn’t get the final test to complete as the software would conflict with Norton’s PC Checkup – which we mentioned earlier in the review.
The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.
The ATTO DiskBenchmark scores the drive slightly lower, as shown above – peaks around 270 MB/s read and around 60 MB/s write.
