First USB 3.0 flash drive has 10X the speed of previous drives

Computerworld - Super Talent Technology today announced what it claimed is the industry’s first 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 compared with 480Mbit/sec that USB 2.0 supports. 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.
