Here we have 50MB & 100MB file transfer testings in different fashions using Crystal Disk Mark. These are the typical file sizes you’ll see with home movies shot with point and shoot cameras. These are usually not long or intense quality. Either way; we do see some slow down on the synthetic testing here with writes coming in at 12 & 17Mbytes a second in the sequential tests. Read speeds are up to snuff with the drive averaging 27.5Mbytes a second.
Here are the large file sizes that you would typically see with any HD video footage shot with most camcorders. We also see a nice boost in the average speed here when it comes to write speeds. Between 22.3 & 22.6 MB/s. This is a very good showing in these tests from Patriot.
Here for our 2GB & 4GB testing we see almost a repeat of last time, except with write speeds going up by 1Mbyte a second on average. This, again, is a perfect showing from Patriot.
As we can see through the other tests, the small random writes & reads are much slower than the sequential speeds. These are all small 512Kilobyte files; many picture files on modern cameras are not that small, so the slowness of speed is rather inconsequential.
We’ll address those later in some less scientific fashion.
