HD Tach reports that the eGo is certainly making good use of the additional bandwidth provided by the USB 3.0 interface, with an average read speed of 95.0MB/s and a surprisingly higher average write speed of 97.6MB/s. Now to break it down further: Crystal Disk Mark.

Here we see more impressive results, showing that the eGo continues to operate around its maximum capacity for the duration of the benchmarks. Even in random write operations, iomega is managing to push the speed beyond that possible with USB 2.0.
