As with all our portable disk reviews, I would just like to make it clear from the start that we are, by no means, expecting the compared USB flash drives on the list to deliver performance competitive with the Crucial X8 1TB external solid state drive. However, our AIDA64 results do provide interesting insight to the performance of the Crucial X8 1TB as a USB 3.1 Gen 2 storage device. Delivering up to 937.9MB/s sequential read, 929.8MB/s random read, and 916.5MB/s buffered read, it completely crushed everything else on the list. The second closest on the list, the LaCie Mobile SSD 500GB, also an external SSD, was only roughly half as fast. Its 0.09 ms random access time is what you would expect from a USB solid state drive as well. So far, for 1TB of USB 3.1 Gen 2 storage, this is some serious speed.
