Please note these are purely just for my own interest and for anyone else interested – these tests are not performed for proper review purposes or under strict testing environment settings, so they may not be perfectly accurate, however they should represent ballpark figures of what to expect (unless I’ve made a mistake in my benchmark process!).

Simplecom CHN411 USB C to 3 Port USB 3.0 Hub with Gigabit Ethernet ( RTL8153 ) Benchmark

This is the silver version. It is also available in black.

Below are some basic iperf benchmarks of the Simplecom CHN411 USB C to 3 Port USB 3.0 Hub with Gigabit Ethernet adapter. Only the ethernet port was benchmarked as I don’t have any very high speed USB devices to test the USB 3.0 hub ports with. The adapter is confirmed to be using a Realtek RTL8153 chip for the ethernet port. This is a very common chip and you’ll likely see the same one in use across many similar looking adapters with different branding on the outside. The testing was performed using a direct connection between the adapter and a bare metal machine that uses an Intel 82574L Gigabit NIC.
