ATTO Disk Benchmark has been one of our favorite benchmarks since we started testing different digital storage devices. From network attached storage to flash drives, ATTO has provided us with accurate and thorough results with varying transfer sizes. Looking at both of the graphs, you can see the bottom of both read and write graphs are where the USB 2.0 devices reside. The Patriot Stellar 64GB makes a guest appearance at the bottom of the write charts, as it actually is not much faster than the OCZ Rally2, but it does not stay for very long. Comparing between the two Kingston products, we can see the DataTraveler microDuo 2.0 actually is ahead for majority of the file sizes. It also peaked at 20.041MB/s and 29.322MB/s for write and read speeds, respectively. Comparatively, the DataTraveler Locker+ G2 32GB peaked at 14.8MB/s and 18.7MB/s. It is good to see an improvement, especially since this DataTraveler microDuo has dual purposes, but overall it is still quite a slow little turtle. The OCZ Rally2 Turbo 4GB still runs at a faster 27.8MB/s and 32.8MB/s peak write and read speeds. Do keep in mind the OCZ Rally2, when released, was intended as a performance flash drive, while the DataTraveler microDuo was never intended to top benchmark charts.
