Performance

It’s incomplete if we don’t discuss the performance of the TEAMGROUP C212 Extreme Speed ​​USB Drive 512 GB.

Yes, as we said before, TEAMGROUP offers fast performance for a flash drive in its class, through this one product. Speeds of more than 500MB/s can be achieved if you use it for data transfer processes. Is that true?

To prove this claim, we did a test with the CrystalDiskMark8 software.

We used it to transfer data on a laptop powered by an AMD A10 Radeon R5 2.5GHz processor and 8 GB of RAM, and equipped with Windows 10 OS. Below are the results of this flash benchmark test using CrystalDiskMark 8 software.

We use setting 5 test countand test file 4 GiB, and MB/s for unit test. As shown in the picture above, the SEQ1MQ8T1 test results show the numbers 327.62 for the read speed, and 221.25 for the write speed.

You could say, that the claim from TEAMGROUP is quite valid, because the results that are close to 600 MB/s for data transfer can be produced easily by this device.

It’s just that, with the laptop device that we use to transfer files of 4GB, it took us about 3 minutes for the process to complete.

Not only testing it on a laptop based on Windows 10 OS, we also did a second test on another device, namely a MacBook powered by Intel Core i5 with a 1.6 GHz Dual-Core processor and 4GB RAM.

The difference is, we use the AmorphousDiskMark 4.0 software which suitable for a MacBook. Functions and features software this is the same as CrystalDiskMark.

To test this TEAMGROUP pendrive we reviewed, we used similar settings that were applied to our previous test with CrystalDiskMark8.

The test results for SEQ1MQ8T1 are not much different from what we did on Windows. The reading speed figure is 342.79. While the writing speed at 359.16. That is, indeed this flash offers a fairly fast performance, according to the claims of TEAMGROUP itself.
