Hey there. I just picked up a Rage XT 8GB. Advertised write speed is 25MBs, and HD Tune shows around 15MBs
I Understand there is some overhead from various ports and access, but from reviews I have seen, it's not really odd to expect 20+MBs.
Any ideas.

Edit: seems from looking at the Patriot forums, this isn't uncommon.
Some drives go as fast as 22MBs, most seem around 15MBs.
Mine seems to hover around 14MBs under exFAT.
Lower under FAT32.
