Average Bench: 20.9% (201st of 639)

Based on 63 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]
