To test the performance of the Memonex R310 flash drive, I’ll be using three benchmarks. Flash Memory Toolkit, SiSoft Sandra and real-world file transfer times. To start off, I’ll be using the free demo version of Flash Memory Toolkit. The tests here will consist of a low-level read test to determine the average read bandwidth of the drive and a file benchmark to test the average read and write speed of different file sizes.

Read Speed - Low Level Benchmark:
This test determines the average read speed of the flash drive. The results are in megabytes per second along with the flash memory multiplier speed.
The Memonex Race R310 remains fairly middleground here, nothing too ground breaking performance-wise.
