Super Talent, a leading supplier of advanced DRAM- and flash-based devices, has announced the industry’s first affordable lineup of USB 3.0 flash drives. The novelties will popularize the new technology among users looking for cost-efficiency.
“The USB 3.0 Express Duo is perhaps our most exciting USB 3.0 flash drive to date. We were first to break the 300MB/s barrier with our USB 3.0 RAIDDrive and now we are breaking the $15 price barrier. There’s simply really no reason to buy a USB 2.0 flash drive anymore,” said CH Lee chief operating officer of SuperTalent.
The fastest USB 2.0 flash drives are limited to a maximum read speed of approximately 32MB/s. Super Talent’s new USB 3.0 Express Duo can top over 67MB/s when plugged into a USB 3.0 port, yet remains fully-backward compatible to USB 2.0 and for about the same price.
Starting from November, Super Talent plan to start selling 8GB USB 3.0 Express Duo for $14 and the 16GB version for only $29.
