The same pattern continues on for the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive as we move onto our Crystal Disk Mark results. Once again, it performed superbly in sequential read and write benchmarks, and even managed to edge out the Supersonic Magnum. However, the DataTraveler HyperX's its Achilles' heel is random small file performance, which requires high input/out operations per second (Commonly referred to as IOPS). This is no different than other USB 3.0 flash drives we have tested in the past, but for some reason, the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB is especially slow in 4K and 4K QD32 writes. This is one area we would definitely like to see improvement on, although for most users, the real world performance based on the intended usage of a USB flash drive probably will not be a significant issue.
