Gigabyte UASP USB 3.0 driver also boosts USB 2.0 performance

Posted on Friday, August 13 2010 @ 03:08:44 CEST by

Lars-Göran Nilsson from SemiAccurate tested the new UASP USB 3.0 driver from Gigabyte to check the claim that it will also boost USB 2.0 performance on USB 3.0 ports.

Testing revealed USB 2.0 indeed gets a decent boost from the new feature, the reporter found that copying 550MB of files from a USB 2.0 device took 20.9 seconds using USB 2.0 ports while it took 17.7 seconds using the USB 3.0 ports.

CrystalDiskMark 3.0 benchmarks with a 1GB test size and fiver iterations revealed sequential read/write performance gets a pretty nice boost from the new driver, read performance goes up from 34.72MB/s to 37.31MB/s, while write performance gets an even bigger boost from 30.60MB/s to 37.13MB/s.
