Test Rig

Big thank you to CryoPC for providing the following test rig:

CPU: Core i5 750 @ 4GHZ
Motherboard: Asus P7P55D-E
RAM: Corsair Dominator 4GB PC3-12800 DDR3
Storage: Samsung F3 500GB 16MB
PSU: Corsair TX 650w
CASE: NZXT Hades

Methodology

To test the speed of this pen drive I utilised a few different synthetic benchmarks and a real world file transfer test. The ones used were:

  • Sisoft Sandra
  • Crystal Disk Benchmark

The real world transfer test involved backing up the game content for Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War 2 and its two expansions.

The drive used for comparison purposes was Kingston’s very own Hyper X 3.0.
