HD Tach - Average Read Speed

The tables are now turned on our two shooting stars. In average read speed the HyperX took the top spot by 1.6 MB/s, but the Lightning kept with its namesake and performed very well.

 

When it comes to read performance, we see the median speeds increasing a great deal. A-DATA's T801, the slowest drive in the Write Test approached performance numbers close to our top performers with the Gingle Twist Disk and Super Talent Pico Series doing the same.

Burst speeds have little to do with real world performance while transporting data, but when it comes to Vista's ReadyBoost, the story changes. Every drive in our test listed ReadyBoost in the marketing material, but a few of the drives really stood out in this category.

 

Just as before, the Lexar Lightning and Kingston HyperX lead the pack, but nearly all of the other drives tested are right on their heels.
