Corsair Flash Voyager Soars to USB 3.0

It's not quite infinity and beyond, but Corsair did take its Flash Voyager USB memory stick as high as it can currently go, which is USB 3.0. The new SuperSpeed models sport the same rubberized mold as previous Voyager USB sticks, only now they're potentially much faster, assuming your system has a USB 3.0 port. Otherwise, the retooled Voyagers are backwards compatible with USB 2.0/1.1, just obviously not as fast.

"The faster read speeds offered by USB 3.0 make high-speed data storage much more convenient," said Thi La, vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "For example, high-bandwidth videos can be viewed directly from the USB drive, so you no longer have to wait while they are copied to a hard drive or SSD."

You'll be able to snatch up one of the USB 3.0 Flash Voyager drives starting in April in 8GB ($20), 16GB ($30), and 32GB ($70) capacities.
