To give the testing a little spice I chose to include benchmarks from some of my daily use thumb drives. The Corsair Flash Voyager, Corsair Readout and OCZ Rally 2 all offered great performance at their times of launch.

 

HD Tune Pro

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 3.00

HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

- Benchmark: measures the performance

 

- Info: shows detailed information

 

- Health: checks the health status by using SMART

 

- Error Scan: scans the surface for errors

 

- Temperature display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

Super Talent Godfather Series USB Flash Drives

 

I was surprised to see that both drives do not share the same internals. My test machine reported both drives as having different controllers and neither was the same as the Pico Series we tested previously. All things considered, the Godfather Series is as fast and most likely faster than your current flash drive.
