Silicon Power unveils USB 3.0 memory stick26 April 2011 17:09:54
A new USB memory stick using a USB 3.0 interface has been unveiled by manufacturer Silicon Power.
Called the Blaze B10, the device is capable of read speeds of up to 70 MB/s.
This is thanks to the ability of USB 3.0 to carry a bandwidth of up to 5Gbps, compared to 480MBps for USB 2.0.
The Blaze B10 is also market's first USB 3.0 flash drive with colour-changing pattern according to temperature.
Its front is designed with a geometric pattern using heat-sensitive ink, meaning the colour of the pattern will gradually change from blue to red according to the operating temperature of the drive.
The new USB memory stick is available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities.
It follows the recent announcement that rival manufacturer Verbatim is also releasing a USB 3.0 memory stick.
Called the Store 'n' Go USB 3.0 Flash Drive, it is available in capacities of up to 64GB.
