Inateck FD1006C UASP USB 3.0 Docking Station Review


The SSD Benchmark Test System

Before we look at the numbers, lets take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. Windows has the power option set to high performance.

Intel Z97 Test System

The Intel Z97 platform that we used to test the Inateck FD1006C was based around the ASUS Z97-A motherboard with BIOS 1008 that came out on 5/29/2014. The Corsair Dominator Platinum 8GB 2133MHz memory kit was set to XMP 1.3 memory profile settings, which is 1.65v with 9-11-11-31 2T memory timings. The Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD was used as the primary drive (uses 19nm NAND and M310 firmware).

ASUS USB 3.0 Boost:

We wanted to make sure ASUS USB 3.0 Boost was enabled and opened up AI Suite 3 and sure enough the drive showed up as having UASP support. The Inateck FD1006C showed up as an ASMedia ASMT1153e SCSI Disk Device in Windows 8.1.


Let’s have a look at the performance!
