Kingston HyperX 3.0 64GB Flash Drive Review

Kingston recently announced the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 Flash drive that is designed for enthusiasts and gamers, and we have been dying to see how fast this drive really is. Kingston has this drive rated up to 225MB/s read and 135MB/s write! Read on to see what we think of this drive and then see what the benchmark numbers reveal about the 64GB drive that we got for testing.

We've literally benchmarked and used hundreds of USB Flash drives over the years and we can say without a doubt that the Kingston DataTraveler 3.0 Flash Drive is the fastest that we have ever used. This drive is blazing fast and is certainly worthy of being part of the HyperX brand. Our testing showed that the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB Flash Drive was able to run at 246MB/s read and 161MB/s write in ATTO, which is well beyond the 225MB/s read and 135MB/s write speed ratings given by Kingston...

That's a fast thumb drive. First one I've seen in a while where the write speed isn't atrocious compared to the read speed.

Any chance file copying performance numbers could be added to the review?

what type of test you got in mind... Got the drive sitting here, so I'm sure I can do something for you real fast.

Small file copy to and from (i.e. couple hundred pics). Large file copy to and from (i.e. DVD .ISO file).

Yeah, just some typical files you would move to/from this drive to see how the numbers match the synthetic tests.
