Read and Write - File Benchmark:
The second benchmark in the Flash Memory Toolkit is the file read and write test. It will give us a speed in KB/s. The program uses 5 different files of 1 MB, 2 MB, 3 MB, 4 MB, and 5MB. Once again, higher is better.
The Patriot Rage had slower read speeds than the Kingston Data Traveler Locker+ and the Sandisk Cruzer, but the write speeds demolished all the comparison drives. In the 5MB test, the Rage was about twice as fast as the next comparison drive, the OCZ Rally2. If you look at the Rage screen shot in the 4MB test, it had a write speed of 26,752kB/s, which is phenomenal for a flash drive.
