Super Talent USB 3.0 RAIDDrive is Super Fast

USB 3.0 is fast. It's ten times faster than our current USB 2.0 and it's been given the marketing name of "Superspeed."

Are you ready for Superspeed? If you have a USB 3.0 controller in your system, you can take advantage of Super Talent's RAIDDrive, which claims to be the world’s first USB 3.0 flash drive.

It's fast with transfer speeds of up to 200MB/sec. in a USB 3.0 port, but can reach transfer speeds of up to 320MB/sec. if a separate UAS Protocol driver for the USB 3.0 port is applied. It’s roomy too, as it comes in 32, 64, and 128 GB capacities.

"The USB 3.0 RAIDDrive uses patented multiple pairs of differential serial data lines technology for optimal NAND flash performance. This product underscores Super Talent's continued leadership in USB drives. We have developed the world's first mobile USB 3.0 flash drive. It delivers phenomenal performance and it incorporates our own patented technology," said C.H. Lee, chief operating officer of Super Talent.

Super Talent has yet to specify a price, but we'll know for how much when they release this December. Expect the 128 GB version to be at least $350.

    Superspeed? I want LUDICROUS SPEED! (you just know that's the next name they're going to use)

    But seriously, that is an awesome drive. (and the market naming stuff is rather ridiculous, the should just use USB 3.0)
