To test the performance of the Corsair Flash Voyager GTR, I will be comparing it to other drives on the market by running it through benchmarking programs, such as Flash Memory Toolkit and SiSoft Sandra, as well as some real world testing. The combination of these tests should give us a good idea of how the drive will perform in comparison to other USB Flash drives. Prior to testing the drive, the Corsair Flash GTR was formatted using the FAT32 file system, with the unit size set to default. All tests will be performed with the Corsair Flash drive in the rear USB port on my motherboard to get the most accurate results.

The first Flash Memory Toolkit test will measure the read and write performance of the drive - higher is better.
Well, the Corsair Voyager GTR is off to a strong start, managing to beat out all the other comparison drives by a decent margin.
