Testing

Our test setup is as follows:

  • Processor: Intel I7 950 Processor
  • Motherboard: ASUS SaberTooth X58
  • Memory: 6GB Patriot Viper DDR3-1600
  • Video: MSI GeForce GTX 460
  • Sound: Onboard 7.1 Audio
  • Hard Disks: Fujitsu 2.5" 60GB, 5400RPM
  • Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

We will be using ATTO Disk Benchmark and Crystal Disk Mark software to measure data transfer read and write speeds in both USB2.0 and USB 3.0 and record the differences. Keep in mind these tests are subjective in nature and speeds will vary and are dependent on devices installed.

MH-2615 Heaven

First up, Crystal Disk Mark. We’ll show USB 2.0 results first, followed by USB 3.0 in each test for each drive enclosure.

And ATTO:

We don’t see a huge jump between the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 results, which is likely due to the 5400RPM limitation of our 2.5" drive. A 7200RPM 2.5" drive would show better results between the two interfaces, and a solid state drive would show significant speed increases.

Let’s see what happens on the next enclosure.

MH-2624 Stargate

First up, Crystal Disk Mark. We’ll show USB 2.0 results first, followed by USB 3.0.

And ATTO:

Again we see similar results with the Stargate enclsure, as the jump between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 isn’t too significant with this 5400RPM drive. There is a noticeable improvement, but nothing overwhelming. Again, we could see better results with a faster drive such as an SSD that can take advantage of the improved speeds offered by USB 3.0. This really isn’t a limitation of the Archgon enclosures though; rather, it’s a limitation of the hard drive itself.
