To test the performance of the Super Talent Luxio 64GB, I will use a program that is called Flash Memory Toolkit. The free demo of this program will be used to do the testing. This consists of a low level read test, which will check memory bandwidth on the device, and then a write test of different file sizes. The next benchmark will be the removable storage SiSoft Sandra benchmark. Finally, I will test once again the write speed by copying on it our custom files - the same ones we use for the WinRAR benchmark. All thumb drives have been formatted beforehand and they are plugged in a rear USB port on the motherboard.

Read Speed - Low Level Benchmark:
This is the first benchmark from Flash Memory Toolkit. This test outputs a speed in megabytes per second and a "times" factor. For both scores, higher is better.
The Mushkin Mulholland Drive fell into the top three in both of the Flash Memory Toolkit tests here, it was only beaten out by the Super Talent Luxio and the Super Talent The Godfather drives.
