Kingston comes up with 1 TB USB flash drive

Kingston-1-TB-flash-drive

Believe it or not the acclaimed memory maker Kingston has managed to design a USB flash drive with the shocking capacity of 1 TB. The device is not on the market yet but the company announced it a few days ago, which means we’ll see it soon on store shelves.

The 1 TB USB flash drive is called Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 and as it happens with most devices that feature large storage capacities this one makes use of the latest USB 3.0 standard – otherwise it would be painful to try to store that much data over the older USB 2.0 or even USB 1.1 standard. Thanks to USB 3.0 the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 has read/write speed of up to 240 MB/sec and 160 MB/sec respectively. With USB 2.0 though you will achieve just up to 30 MB/sec.

As it often happens with the latest technology the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 has a huge drawback – price. The device is expected to cost well over USD 2000 but to somehow ease the pain Kingston has a 512 GB version of it – this one sells for USD 1750.
