Hi all, I have a problem with the speed of my USB 3.0 on my Asus Hero_X M/B. Running both Windows 10 & 11
I am only getting transfer rates of about 38 MB/s at it's fastest. The same USB stick used on my ROG Laptop gets speeds of 138 MB/s
My System is: Intel Core i7 8700K GeForce GTX 1080 Windforce 8GB Card Samsung SSD 960 EVO 1TB PCIe NVMe drive Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB PCIe NVMe drive WD 4TB BLACK X 2 Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB BIOS version: 2701 Date: 07/13/2021
I have tried plugging the USB stick into all the sockets on the front and back of the PC, I also have some USB C sockets. They all return a speed of around 38 MB/s I have uninstalled the USB Drivers and reinstalled. I have checked the BIOS to make sure they are enabled.
Has Anyone got any Good suggestions in what might be wrong with the system? Thank You......
P:S I have just updated my Post here: I installed Linux Mint to my PC and the USB key is transferring data at 200 MB/s So it can't be a hardware problem! I would say it's a windows problem? Drivers ? Windows says it is using the best USB drive ? I am Stumpted ??
It sounds like that USB stick is running at USB 2.0 speeds. Either it's a driver issue or that stick is not entirely compliant with 3.0 spec. If possible I would try a different 3.0 drive to see how it behaves.

Hi all, As I started this post I thought I would Close this topic as I have found the answer To my original question. And the answer is: The SanDisk Ultra-Dual Drive Go 64GB for USB Type-C devices an A Connections. Up To 150MB/S
Is incompatible with windows 11.
I showed this by installing this USB3 drive on a Linux Mint O/S And it was absolutely flying.
On the Windows 11 the best I was getting was 38 M/Bs Not much faster than USB2.
On the Windows O/S I inserted a Corsair Voyager GTX USB3 Stick And got huge data write/read speeds. And for good measure I inserted a SanDisk Extreme USB3 Stick And got huge data read/write speeds. So there we are.
So, do not buy a SanDisk Ultra-Dual Drive Go 64GB for USB Type-C devices an A Connections. Up To 150MB/S if you want to use it on a Windows 11 PC !! I hope you find this article useful?
