PQI releases world's smallest USB 3.0 memory stick 5 May 2011 17:24:52
A new ultra-small USB memory stick has been unveiled by PQI.
The manufacturer claims that the device is the world's smallest USB 3.0 flash drive.
Called the Intelligent Drive U819V, it is available in capacities of between 4GB and 32GB and, thanks to its USB 3.0 interface, is capable of ultra high-speed transfer rates.
USB 3.0 technology offers transfer speeds of up to 5Gb/s - ten times faster than USB 2.0.
PQI says the USB memory stick, which measures just 3cm long, has "a sleek and simple look featuring clean lines and smoothly curving trim, creating a seamless, unitary exterior".
"The disk's glossy exterior coating in ivory white and midnight black gives off a beautiful, glittering silvery radiance," the company adds.
It also features an LED display that flickers when data is being read and an “exclusive” cap retention design.
The news follows the recent announcement that AMD has become the first major microprocessor manufacturer to have USB 3.0-capable chipsets certified by the USB Implementers Forum.
