Kingston DT HyperX Predator 512GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

 Crystal Disk Mark

 I’m starting the tests with Crystal Disk Mark, a pretty popular drive benchmark.

 

cdm

 

The results we see above are better than those declared by Kingston, sequential read reached 247.5 MB/s while write was 161.6 MB/s.

Random transfers in this test look really good for a flash drive.

 

 

ATTO Disk Benchmark

The ATTO results are not bad but I won’t hide that I was expecting higher write transfers. I’ve checked it on a different setup but on the other motherboard it was still not much more than 120 MB/s.

Read transfers are about as high as declared so 240 MB/s.

AS SSD

AS SSD is a benchmark dedicated to testing SSDs but I decided to check how HyperX DT Predator performs in this application.

As we see random transfers are nearly as good as in Crystal Disk Mark which is of course good result. Sequential read transfer looks also good reaching 258.73 MB/s. Write transfer is again slightly lower than declared, it seems like this value depends on the testing software and file size.

 

 

Anvil’s Storage Utilities

Next test is Anvil’s Storage benchmark which, like some of the previous applications tests sequential and random transfers, but it also tests IOPS and access time.

Results in this test look really good. It’s worth mentioning that this is a very high IOPS mark for flash drive type storage.

 

 

AIDA64

The last benchmar k is AIDA64 random transfer tests to compare results with some other benchmarks.

 

aida random

 

The results are really interesting. Random transfers in AIDA64 tests are really high. Read tests are even higher than declared by Kingston sequential transfers.

It once again proves that the speeds depend on the benchmark software, settings and file sizes.
