We perform each test multiple times to ensure that abnormalities don’t enter into the test results.

First we copied a folder containing 12 MKV files, totaling 8GB in size. We copied them to and from each of the drives via an internal sata based Memoright 240GB SSD.

We recorded a staggering 260 MB/s from the new Kingston Datatraveler HyperX 3.0 64 GB drive. We ran the test many times and even checked with another computer because these results are miles ahead of anything else we have tested to date within this sector.

Next we copied a folder with many mixed files, ranging in size from simple text based Word documents to several 100 MB video files. The folder size is 1GB. We record the average time taken then work out the speeds of the drives. Again we copy via an internal sata based Memoright 240GB SSD.

With a mixed file size folder, results drop significantly, but they are still incredible, and way ahead of competing products we have used today.
