Patriot Supersonic Magnum 256GB Testing:
SiSoft's Sandra 2012 features a specific benchmark for thumb drives and other externally-based flash media. Similar to Flash Memory Toolkit's testing method, Sandra 2012 writes files of varying sizes to the drive multiple times to measure performance. A sub-benchmark is also conducted that focuses more on sector use. Higher read and write speeds are better.
Removable Storage Benchmark:
The Patriot Supersonic Magnum is again a standout leader through the tests. At small file sizes it's not incredibly quick but with anything larger it absolutely will not leave you waiting. In the random sector write test it blows away the fastest Flash drives I have on hand.
