Pulling out our third benchmark, Crystal Disk Mark, the Kingston DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 pulled out some quite interesting numbers. Sequential write and read speeds are as expected, and similar to our other previous tests, with results of around 45.22 MB/s write and 192.7 MB/s read. Again, the write speed is right on with Kingston's rating, although its read speed is still about 50MB/s below what they advertise it to be. In the 512K tests, the DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 pulled out an astonishing 39.91 MB/s write and 158.3 MB/s read; faster than every other USB drive on the charts -- much to my surprise. This continued for the 4K and 4K QD32 tests, as write and read speeds were consistently faster than the competition. As far as 4K and 4KQD32 tests are concerned, they require high input/output operations per second (Commonly known as IOPS), and this flash drive is unlike any other USB drive we have tested before. While this performance is still leagues behind the solid state drive, it is quite pleasant to see Kingston doing something right here. In every day usage, if you are copying tons of small files to your device, you will definitely see a big performance boost.
