The system that I am using is to test most of the hardware. The same operating system, choice of USB 3.0 port (specific rear I/O port) version of benchmark software and the testing method is maintained throughout the graph.

Processor+ CoolerIntel i7 4790k + Noctua NH-U12S

RAM8GB Kingston DDR3 HyperX

The testing methods are as follows:

CrystalDisk Benchmark 5.0.2 x64

ATTO Benchmark v2.46

Transfer File Tests:

  • 98.3GB Assorted video files folder transfer
  • 11.3GB ISO file transfer
  • 1.33GB Assorted image transfer
  • 1.28GB ZIP file transfer

Drive Format: NTFS

The test that I am doing is with a newer system and, therefore, it’s not compared with the drive’s benchmarks tested on the older test setup due to the change of USB 3.0 controllers. But if you want to know the older benchmark data, you can check the last review which was done on the older test setup.
