Storage and USB Performance


AIDA64 Engineer

AIDA64 Engineer is a streamlined Windows diagnostic and benchmarking software for engineers. It has unique capabilities to assess the performance of the processor, system memory, and disk drives. AIDA64 Disk Benchmark determines the data transfer speed of hard disk drives, solid-state drives, optical drives, and flash memory based devices. Download here. We always use the same Patriot Supersonic Magnum 256GB USB 3.0 drive to test USB 3.0 performance.

USB, HDD and SSD performance are all fairly standard. To get higher speeds PC Specialist could equip an M.2 SSD instead of a SATA one, or use an SSHD instead of a HDD, but these things would add unnecessary cost that wouldn’t add much to the user experience.

CrystalDiskMark

CrystalDiskMark is a portable storage drive benchmark utility that enables you to measure sequential and random read/write speeds on different block size data. CrystalDiskMark will work with any storage drives including hard drives, SSDs and USB flash drives. Download here.

Sequential Write

Crystal Disk Mark reveals more solid results: it’s not the fastest SSD in the world but the performance is snappy enough. In practice you won’t tell the difference between this Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB and a faster SSD like the Samsung 850 Pro 250GB.

    A decent price for what you get, it’s about the same as I’d charge a customer for a build of similar spec.
