The ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 64GB continues to perform well as we move into our Crystal Disk Mark sequential read and write results. Once again, it did not post big performance numbers compared to the competition, but these relatively modest results are very commendable nonetheless. It also outperformed all other USB 3.0 drives in the 512K write test. However, once we move beyond it into the 4K and 4K QD32 territory, which requires high input/out operations per second (Commonly referred to as IOPS), the DashDrive Elite UE700 really suffered. As far as the magnitude of the difference is concerned, this characteristic is no different than other USB 3.0 flash drives we have tested in the past. Improving IOPS is one area we would definitely like to see improvement on for everyone selling thumb drives, although for most users, the real world performance based on the intended usage of a USB flash drive will probably not be a significant issue.
