ASUS USB 3.1 Performance Review
Published: 26th March 2015 | Source: ASUS | Price: |
We have two tests in our graphs. One with Turbo Off, which is the USB 3.0 standard, and one with Turbo On, which brings the full weight of the 10Gb/s USB 3.1 standard to bear. We don't expect this to make much difference in anything but the fastest sequential tests, but that's what we're here to discover.
Sure enough our first test in Anvil demonstrates how this is an increase in headroom, with the 4K tests being identical, and only when you hit the 128KB block size does the USB 3.1 provide a benefit. The sequential test really shows how much extra bandwidth is available.
