USB 2.0 and 3.0 performance looks strong, but how it compares to others at the moment we can't really tell. USB 3.0 performance, though, is well past the 300 MB/s mark when it comes to read performance.

SSD performance across the board is pretty strong, and you can see for the most part we manage to line up with the best of the results.

 

HD Tune Pro minimum sits a little lower, but still ahead of the ASUS offering. Apart from that, the numbers are pretty solid across the board.
