Cool 8GB Patriot Xporter USB Flash 180x speed Tests

I bought a pair of 8GB Patriot Xporter USB flash drives rated for 180x read speeds. Plan to eventually use them to try out installing WinXP/Vista from USB flash drives etc





Specifications:
  • Hi Speed USB 2.0 Compatible (backwards compatible to USB 1.1)
  • Easy plug and play functionality
  • Durable shock resistant housing
  • Speeds up to 180x
  • Driverless in Windows ME/2K/XP/Vista, Mac OS 9.x, OS X, and Linux with USB storage support
  • Certified for Microsoft Vista Readyboost
  • Lifetime Warranty

System:
  • E8600 Q820A599 0464
  • CPU Cooling: Dtek Fuzion Rad Tower Box
  • DFI LP DK X48-T2RBS Plus - 9/23 beta bios
  • 128MB Gainward FX5200 PCI
  • 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500 16FD5
  • Memory cooling: 120x25mm Thermaltake 81cfm fan
  • 1TB Samsung HD103UJ SATAII OS Drive
  • Pioneer 215 DVD-RW
  • 1200W Silverstone OP1200
  • Windows XP Pro SP3 nLite fully hotfix updated

Benchmark results:
Emptied a spare 2GB Corsair Voyager usb flash drive I had which is a model prior to Corsair switching from SLC to MLC.

Corsair Voyager vs Patriot Xporter Properties





ATTO Bench

2GB Corsair Voyager = 30.13MB/s reads and 12.17MB/s writes
8GB Patriot Xporter = 31.85MB/s reads and 22.12MB/s writes



HDTach

2GB Corsair Voyager = 29.9MB/s reads, Random access = 0.7ms, CPU Utilization = 4%
8GB Patriot Xporter = 32.8MB/s reads, Random access = 0.8ms, CPU Utilization = 6%



HDtune Pro Trial

Read

2GB Corsair Voyager = 29.3MB/s average reads
8GB Patriot Xporter = 31.2MB/s average reads



File Benchmark



Looks like a pretty decent improvement for write speeds for usb flash drives in 8GB capacities considering the price. I bought 2GB Corsair Voyager back in December 2007 for AUD$27.50. Now the 8GB Patriot Xporter cost me AUD$35.

as i said on the OCAU thread that you mentioned these drives....

Any difference between the "normal" and the mini ones other than size?

Hey there

Yeah no idea... minis have 200x read rating so reads will be faster than my ones but new Xporter XT seem to also be 200x read. The problem is write speeds no one knows Must be pretty new if no one has reviews online from quick google search heh.
