Average Bench: 20.4% (214th of 639)

Based on 119 user benchmarks.  Device: VID 1b1c PID 1a09 Model: Corsair Voyager GT 3.0

The 16GB Corsair Flash Voyager GT is an above average performer. With burst sequential read/write speeds of 130/24 MBps the GT has a reasonable large file performance profile. The GT clocked in an effective speed of 73.6 MB/s which puts it amongst the top 25% of 16GB USB 3.0 flash drives. The peak small file 4K read/write speeds of 18.8/0.93 MBps demonstrated by our four samples are remarkable. These speeds mark the Voyager GT as the fastest 4K reader and the fourth fastest 4K writer amongst all the 16GB flash drives we have tested to date, a very impressive result. [Feb '14 USBFlashPro]

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
