I am doing a second round of tests on my Corsair flash drives, first round was here : Link
Same hardware as the test rig :
Asus P8P67 PRO
Corsair 600T case
Test devices :
The newest one being the CMFVY3S-32GB. I also took a picture of them, as usual, nice and weak iphone 4 photo :

overall, very similar speeds, in a smaller device, when comparing the two usb3 drives. The old style is a bit bigger, and the new one is the same size as the old usb2 drives, which people will like. The newer drive has about double the writes as the old drive, but the old drive seems to have higher 4K and 4KQD32 compared to the new drive, almost double!
I like them both, they’re high capacity, but I would probably go with the newer one based on size alone, and speed bump in the write arena.
