USB 3.0 Thumbdrive Write Speeds ?

I have an ASUS laptop with a USB 3.0 port into which I plugged a Corsair Flash Voyager GT USB 3.0 Thumbdrive .

I then copied a 32 Gbte file from laptop to the Corsair drive getting a speed of around 45 Mbtes/sec.

This is my first experience of USB 3.0 devices and am wondering whether this is the sort of speed I should expect ?

Looks fine for that model flash drive.
You are limited by the speed of the device, and that one is rated at 40MB/s write.
Read speed for that device is 85MB/s
