The next stage is to analyse the performance of the drives with some of the best software available online.
Crystalmark is a useful benchmark to measure theoretical performance levels of hard drives and SSD’s. We are using V3.0 x64.
These results are close to the speeds that ADATA list, around 100 MB/s sequential read and 25 MB/s sequential write. This is by no means one of the leading USB 3.0 flash drives in regards to throughput, but it is a relatively quick drive marketed at a budget price point.
The ADATA N005 Pro is the quickest ADATA flash drive we have tested to date, but the 64GB Kingston DataTraveller HyperX takes the top performance spot by a clear margin. Those read and write speeds are seriously impressive. It is a completely different price sector however.
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.
ATTO mirrors the results of CrystalDiskMark, the S107 16GB scores around 100 MB/s read and 25 MB/s write. The S107 is a decent performance drive at a good price point for general use. Anyone seeking ultimate performance however will need to dig a little deeper for a more expensive drive.
