Kingston unveils fastest-ever USB memory stick20 May 2011 16:55:35
A new USB memory stick unveiled this week by Kingston is the company's fastest ever, it claims.
The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate Generation 2 flash drive uses a native USB 3.0 controller for better performance and power management.
This allows it to reach a read speed of up to 100MB/s, and a write speed of up to 70MB/s when used with a USB 3.0 port, making it an ideal solution for those looking to store and transfer large files, such as HD video and hi-res photos, says the manufacturer.
Jim Selby, EMEA product marketing manager at Kingston Technology, said: "The growing number of platforms and computers supporting the USB 3.0 standard, as well as the benefits of the single chip controllers that allow better compatibility and performance, are helping drive the adoption of USB 3.0 technology."
The DataTraveler Ultimate Generation 2 flash drive is available in capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
