External drive bottlenecked by USB port?

Go to solution Solved by SupaKomputa,

What WD drive? SSD or HDD?

If HDD it won't saturate even a Gen 1, the drive can only push 2-3 gbps anyway.

So to answer your question, no the usb didn't bottleneck the drive.

Only if you put the wrong cable (usb2) then it will have usb2 speed (480mbps).

And anyway, don't game from the external drive, it's silly.

Ok the drive was marked USB 3.0 on the store page, ok I put it into a USB 3.0 port... It performed like total crap(Rainbow Six Siege) , ok I tried to plug it into a 3.1 Type A port I could be imagining it but it seems to have gotten slightly less bad but still bad... Ok I read on the specs page of Western Digital and this darn thing uses USB 3.2 Gen 1 ok wtf happened to it being a 3.0 and what kinda bottling can I expect while using it on a 3.1 Type A port rather than 3.2 Gen 1?!! ūüėź

USB 3.2 Gen 1

That is still USB 3.0, just with the new name. Yes, the certification-body behind USB went and made a confusing naming-scheme and decided to rename the old ones as well.

 

As for the drive, since you're not giving any information about it, there's nothing I can say about it.

Blame the USB consortium for renaming things.

 

"USB 3.0", "USB 3.1 Gen 1" or "USB 3.2 Gen 1" are the same (5 Gbps)

"USB 3.1", "USB 3.1 Gen 2" or "USB 3.2 Gen 2" are the same (10 Gbps)

"USB 3.2" or "USB 3.2 Gen 2x2" are the same (20 Gbps)

 

What type of drive is it and what's the speed you're getting? Because "it performed like crap" isn't much to go on.

An HDD is never going to get particularly good speeds; you'd be lucky to get even 100MB/s. Also, again, since you're not saying the specific model, there's not much to go on with. The HDD could be just a 4200RPM one, for example, which would make it even slower.

Since it's a HDD I would expect that to bottleneck the USB port rather than the other way around :P

 

USB 3.0 should be able to do 5 Gbps (625 MB/s), while most HDDs (7200 rpm) will be somewhere around 80-160 MB/s read speed.

External USB-drives, especially 2.5" ones, often run at just 4200RPM.

Yes. My point was that a HDD (even at 7200 RPM) is only 80-160 MB/s. A 4200 RPM one is going to be even slower. So I don't think the USB port is the issue here.

Just now, Eigenvektor said:

Yes. My point was that a HDD (even at 7200 RPM) is only 80-160 MB/s. A 4200 RPM one is going to be even slower. So I don't think the USB port is the issue here.

Yeah good, then it's just a slowpoke drive, but how come it feels faster in the 3.1 type a expansion card from ASRock? If it cannot even do 3.0 speeds good...

Blame the USB consortium for renaming things.

 

"USB 3.0", "USB 3.1 Gen 1" or "USB 3.2 Gen 1" are the same (5 Gbps)

"USB 3.1", "USB 3.1 Gen 2" or "USB 3.2 Gen 2" are the same (10 Gbps)

"USB 3.2" or "USB 3.2 Gen 2x2" are the same (20 Gbps)

If it cannot even do 3.0 speeds good

USB 3.1 Gen 1 == USB 3.0. Also, USB 3.0 can do around 540MB/s -- your HDD is never going to get anywhere near that speed.

Yeah good, then it's just a slowpoke drive, but how come it feels faster in the 3.1 type a expansion card from ASRock? If it cannot even do 3.0 speeds good... 

I'd use something like CrystalDiskMark to check. This is more reliable than subjective feelings.

 

Could also be the integrated USB controller is just crap, which could explain why the expansion card is faster (because the other one isn't actually running at 3.0 speeds)
