Windows 10: Expected transfer rate Windows 10 to USB 3.0 Stick
Expected transfer rate Windows 10 to USB 3.0 Stick
I am questionning a lot the usual transfer rate Windows offers for different file transfers.
For example, what transfer rate should I expect from Windows 10 USB 3.0 to USB 3.0 Kingston stick.
I know Kingston are not the top of the line but they are far from the crapest stick on the market these days. When transferring a video file of 1.9G to the stick I got 4.5 MB/s of transfer rate which I find quite low.
The port is USB 3.0 so is the stick. Bran new Gamming 7 Gigabyte Mobo.
Doing some research I kinda found the answer to my interrogations.
Using this website, comparing USB keys and giving benchmark I could establish that the stick I have performed exactly as it should. I tested my sandisk extreme and got almost 100Mb/s of transfer rate for the same file.
Using my Corsair Voyager, which is the fastest USB 3.0 stick I have, I average about 80MB/s transfer.
But, I find it varies a LOT between different sticks and different brands. Some only get in the 20's.
Connecting a USB 3.0 device to a USB 2.0 Port will dramatically decrease overall performance.

That is a full set of bench marking for your Drive.
How big is your Stick ? Which Format?
My lappie has USB3 ports. Or course I know the clock down to whatever device you attach. I have a 500G Seagate External rated at USB2. Meaning my transfers should be 480 megabits per second (mbps), or 60 megabytes per second (MBps), correct? So why...
