How much speed u guys are getting from usb 3.0, i am getting only 7-9mbps
^ Thats too low. :O I get 70-85 mbps on average. Lowest is around 35mbps(hapened once when I was copying 230gb at once).
i think you are using windows 7 right??
is this speed is on all of the ports or some specific ports, have you installed the latest USB drivers by intel???
i get ~50MBps on left side ports, as right side one's don't work on win8 drivers, but that's win8 bug, your's should be resolved by the latest drivers here...
Also make sure to format in NTFS...
Yea i am using win7, I just checked with the same soft tht u are using and i am getting results as View attachment 8149
but while transferring data from my sony 8gb pendrive or via my mobile usb transfer , i am getting only 7-9mbps max for 4-6gb transferring...is it problem tht i am using a usb 2.0 device... idk how to check tht..?
Okzz... when i try to transfer 5.5gb from one of my local disk to another, it is taking abt 4 minutes and in the mean while i am trying to open mozilla , it was not opening and got opened and gets hanged... when the transfer gets finished everything seems to be perfect... y is tht ?
just kidding, it's because of the "bottlenecked" 5400rpm HDD under the lappy, as transfer of files require heavy read and write cycles, 5400rpm drives are easily bottlenecked by this operation, opening firefox or any other application requires reading from disk and loading it into main memory, as reading speed and all the seeking time is already used by file transfer, therefore application seems to be opening slow or frozen, until it's completely loaded in the main memory...
5400rpm HDDs are not that slow as you're reflecting them to be. The problem could be due to any minor reason, background process, mozilla problem, file sector corrupt, or even HDD bottleneck in this specific case (when some other program which is not mentioned, is also eating disk bandwidth).
