Testing:

To test the performance of the 32GB Flash Voyager, I will use a program called Flash Memory Toolkit. While this is a shareware application, there is a free demo which will allow me to perform the tests that I need. I will use the low level read test, which will check memory bandwidth on the device, then I will test several test files for the writing portion. While the testing is taking place, I will have the Flash Voyager plugged directly into a rear USB port.

Testing Setup:

  • Processor: Intel Core2Duo E6600 Processor
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA EX38-DQ6 Motherboard
  • Ram: 2048MB G.Skill HZ RAM
  • Video Card: eVGA 8800GTS 640MB Video Card
  • Power Supply: GameXtreme 700w Power Supply
  • Hard Drive: Western Digital 74GB Raptor
  • Hard Drive: Western Digital 500GB Caviar
  • Optical Drive: Sony Optical Drive
  • Case: Antec Sonata II Mid-tower Case
  • Primary Testing OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Mouse: Saitek GM3200 Laser Mouse

Read Speed - Low Level Benchmark:

The first test is the low level read test. This will give us a speed in megabytes per second and an X factor. The result of this was that the average read rate was 21.5Mb/s and the X factor was 146X.
