USB 2.0 vs. USB 3.0 Flash Drives On Linux
Phoronix: USB 2.0 vs. USB 3.0 Flash Drives On Linux
With the current Linux USB stack and file-systems, do USB 3.0 flash drives provide much of a performance gain over USB 2.0 flash drives? In this article are some brief benchmarks from USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 Corsair Flash Voyagers.
Sandisk Extreme 64 GB at 183 MByte/s
I have an SSD Samsung 256GByte, Kubuntu 12.10 and a Sandisk 64 GByte Extreme and over Usb 3. I am getting extraordinary results like 183 MByte/s on large files copy. E.g. copying a virtualbox appliance.
Really miss Virtual Box having usb 3 support because my laptop has no usb 2 ports.
