The word on the street is that USB 3.0 flash drives are coming soon near December(that’s next month!). Thanks Greg for the tip!
Wouldn’t you love to have a USB flash drive that could copy files at the rate of 200MB per second? Using a separate UAS Protocol driver with a USB 3.0 port this SuperSpeed drive can reach up to 320MB/sec transfer speeds.
It’s a bit large, but hell, who cares. Size is 95 x 37 x13.5 mm The USB 3.0 USB flash drive will be shipping with 32GB, 64GB and 128GB sizes. No word on price, but let me give you an idea…at the time of this writing, Super Talent offers their USB 2.0 32GB drive for $95 MSRP. So you could only imagine what the USB 3.0 Flash Drive would cost.
The new USB 3.0 flash drive is backward compatible to USB 2.0 and will obviously work at those slower speeds. It’s also worth noting the USB 3.0 transfer rates will only be obtain via USB 3.0 ports and USB 3.0 bus.
