Your entire digital world can now fit in your pocket. A 1TB flash drive was unveiled at CES in Las Vegas this week by Kingston Digital, Inc.
Kingston’s 1TB flash drive, called the DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0, is the world’s largest-capacity USB 3.0 flash drive. Kingston currently offers a 512GB flash drive and expects to ship the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 later in the first quarter.
Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston, said:
“Our new DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 allows users to store their entire digital world on a portable USB 3.0 Flash drive … The large capacity and fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds allow users to save time as they can access, edit and transfer applications or files such as HD movies directly from the drive without any performance lag.”
Kingston’s 1TB flash drive is compliant with the next-generation USB 3.0 specifications which means that not only is the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 capable of holding an incredibly amount of data it can also transfer information with relatively quick speeds. Kingston says that the new flash drive will be capable of speeds of up to 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write.
Kingston hasn’t announced a price for their 1TB flash drive yet but the company’s 512GB model is currently available for $1750.
