Crystal Disk Mark 8.0 is in the spotlight. Just a bit of background information, higher capacity drives tend to perform a little better in these tests. The ability of a controller and flash memory to deliver high IOPS will provide huge benefits to the score as well. Looking at the read and write results of all four sections, the Supersonic Rage Prime 1TB absolutely dominated each and every one of them against the compared USB flash drives and matched the advertised figures for the linear read speed. Simply put, the latest Patriot drive was untouchable, especially when it came to the IOPS-demanding RND4K tests. IOPS-demanding tests has always been a weak point for USB flash drives, but the Supersonic Rage Prime 1TB is faster -- by a considerable margin in select tests -- than SSDs like the Crucial X6 2TB, which is insane. I will let you make your own comparisons in our list of USB flash drives in the graphs above.
