Kingston Takes On USB 3.0 Standard With Fastest Thumb Drive

X

Kingston has upped the ante on its flagship thumb drive by upgrading the USB 3.0, which it says is the new standard, making the DataTraveler Ultimate its fastest USB stick.
Now marked as the memory-specialist’s fasted USB 3.0 flash drive, the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G2 is the typical USB thumb drive on steroids, with Kingston upping the transfer speeds in the same small profile as the last generation.

The specs are all the same as the last gen – it’s still a bit hefty when up against other USB sticks, measuring up to 73.7 x 22.2 x 16.1mm and stocking in the same 16, 32 and 64GB sizes – though this unit realises the potential of its USB 3.0 adapter.

While the original DataTraveler Ultimate hit USB 3.0 data transfer rates of up to 80MB/sec reading and 60MB/sec writing, the second generation tops at a 100MB/sec read and 70MB/sec write speed.

It’s also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports, so the versatility is there. But while it backs USB 2.0, Kingston is looking to USB 3.0 as the new standard in connectivity.

“Kingston is committed to help drive market adoption of the new USB 3.0 standard and make it more accessible to the mass market,” says Kingston’s director of Flash Memory sales, Nathan Su.

Kingston touts the reliability of the high performance USB by slapping on a five year warranty.

The DataTraveler Ultimate USB 3.0 G2 sells for $60 for 16GB, $90 for 32GB, and $155 for the top 64GB model.
