Kingston HyperX Savage USB 3.1 Flash Drive Review
Real World Data Transfers
No matter how good a synthetic benchmark like IOMeter is, it cannot really tell you how your solid state drive or hard drive will perform in “real world” situations. To this end, we will be running timed data transfers to give you a general idea of how its performance relates to real life use. To help replicate worse case scenarios, we will transfer a 10.00GB contiguous file, then a 10.00GB folder containing 1200 subfolders, with a total of 36,000 files varying in length from 200MB to 100KB.
Testing will include transferring data to and from the devices, using MS RichCopy, and logging the performance of the drive. Here is what we found.
Once again, these numbers are decent enough for a flash drive that is not much bigger than the average USB 3.0 flash drive. However, we were hoping to see higher large file performance than this.
