First USB 3.0 flash drive offers 10X speed boost

SuperSpeed RAIDDrive available in 128GB capacity

Super Talent Technology has announced what it claims is the industry's USB 3.0 compliant flash drive, which can support data transfer rates of 5Gbit/sec - 10 times faster than current USB 2.0 products.

Super Talent's SuperSpeed USB 3.0 RAIDDrive comes in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

Measuring 3.7 inches by 1.4 inches - and a half inch thick - the SuperSpeed drive plugs directly into any USB port and can deliver data transfer speeds up to 200MB/sec in USB 3.0 ports. The drive is fully backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports, but it will operate at USB 2.0's slower I/O speeds.

Super Talent said it uses a special technology in the SuperSpeed drive that involves multiple RAID pairs containing differential serial data channels. When a system is equipped with both a special USB Attached SCSI (UAS) driver and USB 3.0 ports, the drive can achieve up to 200MB/sec transfer speeds.

The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 RAIDDrive will be available in December from Super Talent resellers worldwide.

Super Talent has not made any pricing information available on the drive.
