Corsair is all too familiar with the USB flash drives market. And they released something special alright. So you thought your 100 MB/s USB 3.0 read speeds were hot shiznit ? Think again. The folks at Corsair released a product sporting capacities up to 256 GB with read speeds up-to 450 MB. Now that performance does vary on your OS a bit but anything over 300 MB for a thumbdrive is good in my book.
Available in 128 GB and 256 GB capacities, the Flash Voyager GTX is the fastest USB flash drive Corsair has ever produced, offering fast peak transfer speeds of up to 450 MB/sec read and 350 MB/sec write, vastly reducing waiting time when accessing or transferring files on the go. The Flash Voyager GTX boasts the inner technologies of an SSD that will keep the drive operating at peak performance for years to come. USB Attached SCSI and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring ensure blazing fast, error-free transfers of large video music and photo collections, while TRIM support curbs degradation so the Flash Voyager GTX retains its performance, even after extended heavy use. Compatible with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, the Flash Voyager GTX works on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux with no additional software required.
With up to 256 GB of storage, Flash Voyager GTX's capacity options ensure that even the largest files, such as operating systems, game installs or high definition video projects, can easily fit on the drive alongside other multimedia content -- with plenty of room to spare. Take your favorite games with you to a LAN party, or quickly transfer your whole movie collection for easy viewing later. It's the perfect storage gadget for any student, content-hoarder, or computer power user.
