Kingston HyperX Savage USB 3.1 Flash Drive Review
CrystalDiskMark is designed to quickly test the performance of your solid state drives / hard drives. Currently, the program allows the measuring of sequential and random read/write speeds; and allows users to set the number of tests iterations to run. We left the number of tests at 5 and size at 100MB.
AS-SSD is designed to quickly test the performance of your storage devices. Currently, the program allows the measuring of sequential and small 4K read/write speeds, as well as 4K file speed at a queue depth of 6. While its primary goal is to accurately test solid state drives, it does equally well on all storage mediums, it just takes longer to run each test as each test reads or writes 1GB of data.
As you can see, this drive certainly does not need to be branded as a USB 3.1 drive. Rather, it is simply a really peppy USB 3.0 drive. Obviously, flash drive manufacturers have still not figured out how to leverage the increased performance potential that USB 3.1 has to offer, or at least not in a easily portable form factor.
