Patriot Announces Ultra-Fast Single-Chip USB 3.0 Flash Drive New Supersonic flash drives deliver blazing-fast external USB 3.0 storage in a portable form factor FREMONT, CALIF., USA December 9, 2010 - Patriot Memory, a global pioneer in high-performance memory, NAND flash, storage and enthusiast computer products, today announces the Supersonic USB 3.0 flash drive series with a native single-chip USB 3.0 controller. The Patriot Supersonic series breaks away from typical USB 3.0 flash drive and delivers blazing-fast performance with its Quad-Channel technology in a miniature ultra-light form factor. The Patriot Supersonic series eliminates performance bottlenecks introduced when using a separate USB 3.0 bridge chip by integrating a native USB 3.0 flash memory controller. This results in a smaller footprint and higher performance than bridge based solutions - see chart below. "Patriot is one of the first companies to integrate a native single-chip USB 3.0 flash memory controller. By pairing the controller with our Quad-Channel technology, we're able to maximize performance with the Supersonic series," says Les Henry, Patriot Memory's Vice President of Engineering. "We are able to shrink the physical size of the USB 3.0 flash drives for even greater portability." An aluminium housing makes the Supersonic series ultra-lightweight, portable and stylish. The housing delivers extreme durability with shock resistance up to 15Gs to ensure safe transportation of your data. Expect the Patriot 32GB and 64GB Supersonic USB 3.0 flash drives to be available early Q1 2011. General Details - Patriot Supersonic Series - single-chip USB 3.0 flash drives - Quad-Channel technology - Blazing-fast performance - 32GB and 64GB capacities - Sequential read speed: 100MB/s - Sequential write speed: 70MB/s
Will they be more than 20 bucks?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
No real, they will go for a dollar on the 32gb :)
i really want one of these, once you get used to how fast 3.0 is you dont really want to use anything else.
other companies have the same thing, for months now.... http://www.mx-technology.com/en/product/flash2.php?sid=8
that is the first that comes to mind. looks cooler than the Patriot.....(Patriot still make SSD's? lol)
The one that you are comparing it to doesn't have an integrated memory controler, JKing. that is what makes the Patriot model stand out and be so fast. And yes, they still make ssd's as well.
