USB 3.0 Transfer Speed
Jun 14, 2012

Just installed a USB 3.0 PCI Express card in a Dell XPS 8100, and transfer rates are very slow, no where near advertised! Did a comparison with the existing USB port and the 3.0 transfer rate is about 2X the 2.0 rate. Specifically, the 2.0 rate is about 16 MB/sec and the 3.0 rate maxis out at about 35 MB/sec. The USB 3.0 external hard drive is a new Seagate 2 TB desktop model. The USB 2.0 model is an older WD desktop mode.

Any help will be appreciated.
