Kingston Introduces The HyperX USB 3.0 Flash drive

November 22nd, 2011

Kingston-HyperX.jpgWhen you’re transferring pictures or
video files from your USB drive to your computer – or vice versa –
you don’t want to have to wait around for hours. USB thumb drives
have traditionally left a lot to be desired in terms of speed, but
the USB 3.0 standard is improving things nicely.

The new Kingston DataTraveler HyperX
3.0 has a maximum read rate of 225MB/s and a max write rate of
135MB/s. That read rate is up to a gig in four seconds, which means
the 256GB capacity HyperX drive can be emptied in around 16 minutes,
while it would take a USB 2.0 drive a little over an hour.

The DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 is
available in a 64GB size at $199 ($142
on Amazon
), 128GB for $379 ($279
on Amazon
). The 256GB size will be priced and made available
soon.
