To test the performance of the Mushkin Mulholland 16 & 32GB flash drives, I will use a program that is called Flash Memory Toolkit. The free demo of this program will be used to perform 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 into 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.
Â The Mushkin Mulholland 16 & 32GB drives were only beaten out by the Super Talent DH 2GB drive, and they all were able to put the Imation Swivel Pro to shame.
