Looking above, you can see that USB performance under both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 is very similar between the two setups. We rarely see any fluctuation when it comes to USB 3.0 and 2.0 performance.

Looking at SSD performance, across the board, you can see all three benchmarks show the numbers very close to each other. Saying that, though, we do see that HD Tune Pro shows a lower minimum but higher maximum.
