Portable Performance: Four USB 3.0 Enclosures For Your 2.5” Drive

With the same ASMedia ASM1051 bridge used in all four samples, we’d only expect to see a large performance difference if one of the companies messed up its design. Fortunately, none did.

Unfortunately, the ASM1051 appears to be limited to SATA 3Gb/s performance, providing a modest 195 MB/s peak transfer rate with our SATA 6Gb/s SSD.
