My new OCZ Rally2 8GB Dual Channel Flash Drive showed up today. It is a dual channel drive and I wanted to see what speeds it would give me. So, here a few numbers that I got from two of my computers.
|Laptop, one 1.11GB file||9.11MB/sec||30MB/sec|
|Desktop, one 1.11GB file||7.67MB/sec||35MB/sec|
|Desktop, multiple smaller files (138MB total)||2.59MB/sec||35MB/sec|
My older USB flash drive gives me 4.50MB/second write speed and 21.68MB/second read speed. An even older one does around 6.81MB/second (!!) read with 4.85MB/second write. So, for reading the dual channel drive might be worth the extra price.
