On some devices yes, but on others no. I have a new 16GB flashdrive and two 500GB external hard-drives that are both several years old. OpenBSD writes to them significantly quicker than the Windows system in the office downstairs. Windows on computers in the teaching building write to those devices at about the same speed as my OpenBSD. A flashdrive I threw away worked normally on Windows but OpenBSD took forever to write to it. Five to ten minutes to write 100MB! I do not know if my experience typical, but I have found that different devices react differently to the system.
